About Geo Meshing

The Problem

More often than not, engineers face the challenge of developing complex 3D meshes for analyzing real world geometries. Many times an accurate geometry is an important component of the analysis. Without a close representation of the problem, the accuracy and reliability of the results is reduced.

Creating complex meshes for numerical analyses can be really challenging. A surface topography, a staged construction dam, a layered stratigraphy, an open pit excavations, etc., are not easy tasks.

The solution

Geo Meshing is a complete solution for creating complex meshes for Flac3D®. It mainly focuses in developing meshes for earth structures and excavations, but it can also be used for meshing tunneling arrangements. It is flexible, because it uses parametric approach, rather the most common 3D surface approach.

All in all, Geo Meshing can create topographic surfaces from different sources. It can insert earth structures / excavations over complex surfaces in no time. And it is fast! It uses parallel processing for mesh generation.

Geo Meshing will simplify your meshing tasks! Geo Meshing is free of use, and it has several advantages over other meshing algorithm.

Geo Meshing Main Features

  • Layered mesh: Geo Meshing can automatically produce horizontal layers as it meshes bodies. In addition, it can name each layer with sequential designations, thus construction sequence can be simulated.
  • Non-Chaotic mesh generation: Geo Meshing creates, as much as possible, balanced meshes, where big contrast in element sizes and orientations are avoided.
  • Parametric body definition: Geo Meshing uses a parametric definition for creating a wide variety of bodies. All this, without the need of a CAD assistance software.
  • CAD compatibility: Geo Meshing can extract polylines information from DXF files. Using this feature, a topography landform can be developed in minutes.
  • GID® compatibility: Geo Meshing reads 2D files created with GID® and import them into Geo Meshing.
  • Meshing refinement: Geo Meshing can refine meshes at any level within the model.
  • Interpolation algorithms: Geo Meshing includes 2 interpolation algorithms, inverse distance squared and Kriging for getting smooth surface profiles.
  • Flexible: Geo Meshing´s output files can be post processed and used with other software.
  • Multiprocessor: Geo Meshing is a parallel processing software, allowing for faster meshes development.

Bing Maps Integration: Geo Meshing can obtain in real time topographic information from Bing Maps®. Using that information Geo Meshing can develop topographic surfaces of a remote site.
