Abstract
A semi-unstructured grid generation method especially taylored for the meshing of turbomachinery blade passages and their associated cavities is presented. The method is based on a smart combination of quasi-3D methods, an ad-hoc block decomposition of the domain and a grid-based reconstruction of the computational domain.
