Abstract
An overview of the current state-of-the-art and state-of-the-practice of the structured grid generation technology will be provided. The structured grid strategies including attached and overlapping(Chimera) grids will be discussed with generation and adaptation methodologies and softwares. In particular, algebraic, elliptic and hyperbolic generation schemes will be described with grid quality and response time issues. The utilization of Computer Aided Geometry Design (CAGD) techniques in structured grid generation and in interfacing CAD systems will be described.CAGD and grid generation softwares available in public domain and offered by commercial vendors will be presented. Current research efforts in autoblocking and parallel adaptive! moving grid techniques will be summarized.
