We investigate the problem of generating hierarchical unstructured meshes through uniform mesh refinement for efficient solution of PDEs using finite element methods and multigrid solvers. To ensure high accuracy along curved boundaries, we utilize high- order surface reconstruction and projection, without requiring a CAD model. The resulting mesh is then used with a Hybrid Geometric+Algebraic (HyGA) multigrid method. We describe the data structure and software requirements, and present numerical results to demonstrate the accuracy and efficiency of multigrid finite-element solver with the proposed techniques.
