In this paper, we present a new point of view for efficiently managing general mesh representations. After having given some mesh representation basics, we in-troduce the new Algorithm Oriented Mesh Database (AOMD). Some hypothesis are taken in order to be able to manage any set of adjacencies. Then, we present the design of the AOMD in terms of classes and algorithms. The Standard Template Library (STL) is used for managing the AOMD. Finally, we present some preliminary results and discuss technical choices that were made in the AOMD design and implementation.
