Waterfall vs RAD What Is Meshing

Rapid Application Development vs. Agile: Which One's Best?

There are two main approaches to successfully get you from start to finish when it comes to managing software development. These development models are known as the Agile model and Waterfall model. Each development model offers its own unique advantages and ideal use cases.

What Is Meshing?

In this article, we discuss meshing and its use in both Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) and Finite Element Analysis (FEA). We also touch on some of the more common—yet surprisingly critical—mistakes that may be impeding your analysis. And finally, we’ll share tips on how to improve these processes.


Auto Meshing


The Importance of Auto Meshing in CAD Development

The debate between manual meshing and auto meshing is nothing new. For a long time, the general consensus has been that manual meshing was the better option for professionals, while auto meshing was good enough for non-experts. But, with the rapid strides being made in auto meshing algorithms, is this still true?
