The IMR Committee is pleased to announce that the meshing contest will again be part of the 29th IMR.

Participants can submit meshes demonstrating the capabilities of their software in either of the following disciplines:

  • mesh generation
  • mesh post-processing
  • or both

Surface (triangular, quad-dominant, quad, etc.) or volume (tetrahedral/hexahedral/hex-dominant/pyramid etc.) meshes or a combination of both are acceptable.

The presentation form will be a still image showing the details of the mesh and providing additional information as listed below. Along with detailed mesh images, the image must provide the following information on the mesh:

  • Participant(s) name(s)
  • Affiliation
  • Discipline: mesh generation or mesh post-processing or both
  • Meshing code/product used
  • Mesh size (number of nodes and elements of each type)
  • Meshing use (state the problem of physics/engineering the mesh is intended to be used for, specify analysis type)

As the IMR will be a virtual event this year with no fixed geographic location due to the recent Corona virus pandemic, the committee decided on a dinosaur themed challenge.

Please download the IMR Meshing Contest geometry model. The files are 7Zip. To download 7Zip visit:

You do not have to mesh the entire domain or all the entities in the model, just produce a great picture demonstrating good meshing technique. Remember, the winner of the Meshing Competition goes on the 2022 IMR T-shirt.

Images should be at least 14043 by 9933 pixels (300ppi for A0 poster). Meshes must be provided in .msh (gmsh) format.

Email your note of commitment by April 16, 2021 to Jonathan Makem. Please upload a zipped (.7z format) copy of your poster pdf and mesh file by May 21, 2021.
