On Conforming Tetrahedralisations of Prismatic Partitions
We present an algorithm for conform (face-to-face) subdividing prismatic partitions into tetrahedra. This algorithm can be used in the finite element calculations and analysis.
Local nonobtuse tetrahedral refinements around an edge
In this note we show how to generate and conformly refine nonobtuse tetrahedral meshes locally around and towards an edge so that all dihedral angles of all resulting tetrahedra remain nonobtuse. The proposed technique can ...
The maximum angle condition is not necessary for convergence of the finite element method
We show that the famous maximum angle condition in the finite element analysis is not necessary to achieve the optimal convergence rate when simplicial finite elements are used to solve elliptic problems. This condition ...
Generalization of the Zlámal condition for simplicial finite elements in ℝ d
The famous Zlámal's minimum angle condition has been widely used for construction of a regular family of triangulations (containing nondegenerating triangles) as well as in convergence proofs for the finite element method ...
Nonobtuse local tetrahedral refinements towards a polygonal face/interface
In this note we show how to generate and conformally refine nonobtuse tetrahedral meshes locally in the neighbourhood of a polygonal face or a polygonal interior interface of a three-dimensional domain. The technique ...
A Geometric Toolbox for Tetrahedral Finite Element Partitions
In this work we present a survey of some geometric results on tetrahedral partitions and their refinements in a unified manner. They can be used for mesh generation and adaptivity in practical calculations by the finite ...
On global and local mesh refinements by a generalized conforming bisection algorithm
We examine a generalized conforming bisection (GCB-)algorithm which allows both global and local nested refinements of the triangulations without generating hanging nodes. It is based on the notion of a mesh density function ...
