CUBEGEN – Get It Right the First Time, Trillion Cell Mesh Generator

Automated, fast, highly accurate software. Generates superb quality, structured mesh on complex shapes w/standard CAD input.

Software & Information Technology

ImageThe US Air Force Research Laboratory, Directed Energy Directorate, has developed and patented two world class software modules to solve simulation problems: CUBEGEN™ and TMax™ software.

CUBEGEN™ software is a highly accurate and fast Cartesian mesh generation technique with colossal cell capacity using minimal computation and storage resources. This feat is accomplished by using a memory efficient ray tracing method, a highly accurate ray-facet intersection test, and a novel exact tie-breaking algorithm for rays intersecting facet edges and vertices. Because of exact arithmetic operations, the automated generated mesh is almost always right the first time – no user intervention or iteration needed.

If electromagnetic simulation were desired, TMax™ software then solves Maxwell equations on the CUBEGEN™ Cartesian mesh using the finite difference time domain method and generates output. Other solvers can be applied on the CUBEGE™ mesh to solve problems of interest to other disciplines such as CFD.
