GMGW Objectives

Geometry and Mesh Generation Workshops (GMGW) assess the current state-of-the art in geometry and mesh generation technology and software as applied to aircraft and spacecraft systems. They will help identify and develop understanding of areas of needed improvement (performance, accuracy, applicability) in geometry and mesh generation technology software. And they will provide a foundation for documenting best practices for geometry and mesh generation.

Workshops are open to participants worldwide and provide an unbiased forum for discussion of results and promotion and cross-pollination of best practices.

Workshop test cases, instructions, data files, and deadlines are available on the main GMGW-2 page.
