The TrIGA Project: Higher Order Mesh Generation for Fluid-Structure Interaction


The TrIGA (Triangular IGA) project is a meshing project that aims to generate quality, geometrically exact, higher-order meshes for finite element analysis. There is a focus on developing meshes suitable for CFD, with a particular interest in fluid-structure interaction (FSI) problems. The talk will provide a brief background on Isogeometric Analysis (IGA), the parent field that inspired this work. Next, the meshing capabilities of TriGA will be presented for several interesting problems, as a well as demonstrations of mesh quality. Finally, the talk will discuss the distinct advantages of TrIGA for FSI problems, and some preliminary results will be presented.
