R. V. Garimella and M. S. Shephard, "Boundary Layer Mesh Generation for Viscous Flow Simulations", International Journal of Numerical Methods in Engineering, vol. 49, no. 1-2, pp. 193-218, Sep 2000

Abstract

Viscous flow problems exhibit boundary layers and free shear layers in which the solution gradients, normal and tangential to the flow, differ by orders of magnitude. The generalized advancing layers method is presented here as a method of generating meshes suitable for capturing such flows. The method includes several new technical advances allowing it to mesh complex geometric domains that cannot be handled by other techniques. It is currently being used for simulations in the automotive industry.
