Given an arbitrary solid body, we first decompose it into simpler subdomains equivalent to topological balls by adding virtual 2- manifolds. Second, we determine a compatible quadrilateral surface mesh for all created subdomains. Then, in the main part we can use the core routine to build up a hex complex for each subdomain independently. The embedding and smoothing of the combinatorial mesh(es) finishes the mesh generation process.
First results obtained for complex geometries are encouraging.
