Abstract
A method is presented for the automatic block decomposition of complex multi-component closed volumes. Decompositions produced by this method remain unchanged when the geometry undergoes minor parametric changes. This feature is attractive in time-varying geometry or design optimization problems. Examples of the application of this method to alI-hexahedral mesh generation are also presented.
