Triangle and Tetrahedral Meshes for Geological Models

in: Terra Nostra, pages 105--110, Proc. IAMG, Berlin

Abstract

Triangle and tetrahedral meshing are by far the most common forms of unstructured mesh generation. In this paper, we present two advanced triangular and tetrahedral mesh generators, and ways for creating a topological model suitable for such tessellations. In addition to the fact that the resulting simplex meshes can provide conformity to complex geometries, they are very satisfying concerning the shape and the size of the elements, honoring various user- defined constraints.
