Abstract

Automatic Grid Generator. A computer software package is described which, given an arbitrary planar configuration with any number of superimposed, two-dimensional shapes, will partition it to a requested number of small rectangular and/or triangular elements. The package can be used as the input processor to any program that uses a finite element or finite difference numerical scheme.
