CFD Smooths HEX Grids

Gridgen 15.08 CFD meshing software boosts graphics performance 20 to 50% compared to previous versions and supports HP-UX on PA-Risc to Version 11.11.

The software smooths hex grids to improve clustering and orthogonality, which involves solving elliptic partial-differential equations. A new multigrid algorithm accelerates this by up to a factor of 15, especially for large grids.
