General Hybrid Meshes – CENTAUR Software

CENTAUR Simple and Flexible Grid Generation

A simple and automatic sequence of grid generation is followed also allowing re-usability. The CENTAUR hybrid meshes are optimal based on the requirements of the local geometry and field.


  • All Mesh Element Types Supported

    Complex 2-D and 3-D geometries and fields are handled via employment of the appropriate mesh elements.

  • Prismatic Layers

    Layers of prisms can be created in boundary layers and viscous regions.

  • Hexahedral Layers

    Layers of hexahedra can also be formed in boundary layers and viscous regions.

  • Tetrahedral Meshes

    Tetrahedra are created away from the wall regions. All tetrahedral meshes can also be generated.

  • Hexahedral Blocks

    Create structured hexahedral mesh regions to resolve wakes and vortices and combustion regions.

  • Triangular Surface Meshes

    Triangular surface meshes can be generated employing either isotropic or stretched triangular elements.

  • 2D Hybrid Meshes

    2D geometries can be easily meshed using both triangles and quadrilaterals.
