This paper considers issues associated with the construction and application of
anisotropic meshes. Consideration is first given to the meshing requirements
associated with the transient solution of turbulent flow problems discretized
using a stabilized finite element method. This study indicates the key importance
of controlling the smoothness of mesh gradations on transient problems and
demonstrates that in the presence of strongly anisotropic gradients the issue
of what constitutes an unacceptably large dihe- dral angle does not follow the
conventional thinking associated with meshes for problems with isotropic gradients.
Progress on the development of mesh generation tools to provide the types of
anisotropic meshes needed for these classes of ptoblems and their application
to a turbulent flow problem is also given.
