[16 Nov 2015] Creating hexahedra for complex automotive intake geometries can be a time-consuming but necessary task to get desired levels of accuracy. Discover how to leverage T-Rex (anisotropic tetrahedral extrusion) to create unstructured hexahedra quickly in these instances. Best practices for the generation of both surface and volume meshes will be discussed in addition to illustrations on how to troubleshoot problem areas in your mesh.

Problematic skewed tetrahedra are shown in a gap region between a control surface and a body.
