Special session on industrial applications and software development is organized by R&D company TESIS

Workshop topics.

Three major topics are considered:

Despite the fact that grid generation as engineering discipline is quite ripe there exists general dissatisfaction with rigorous foundations of grid generation algorithms. With onset of numerical simulations on moving adaptive grids, with simultaneous numerical simulation and large-scale optimization, with widespread use of topological optimization methods the requirements to computational grids changed drastically. The problems which just recently were quite theoretical such as the grid stability with respect to input data, nonuniqueness and Lavrentiev phenomenon in grid generation, grid nondegeneracy in the limiting cases, definition of grid smoothness, regularity and adaptivity, precise control of local mappings became issue of concern for engineers and numerical analysts and one of the major bottlenecks in high fidelity simulations.

So one of questions of interest is: how the ideas, methods and tools in such theoretical fields as can be applied to grid generation?

Another topic of workshop includes algorithms and methods related to grid generation proper, such as
And the last but not the least topic covers new trends in industrial applications and analysis of requirements for grid generation methods. The purpose of special session on industrial applications is to organize a forum for exchanging information, ideas and experience for numerical analysts, software developers and engineers involved in numerical simulations of fluid and gas flows, structural mechanics, CAD/CAE developments and other activities in aerospace, automotive, ship-building, energy and metallurgical industry.
