Advanced Numerical Simulation Methods: From CAD Data Directly to Simulation Results

Gernot Beer
July 27, 2015

This book is about changing the paradigm of numerical simulation. Until now simulation required the generation of a mesh and this has meant a major effort and also a source of errors. In many cases an accurate description of the problem geometry is available as Computer Aided Design (CAD) data....
