Structured grid refinement using polygons

Andy Long

Recommended Posts

For structured grids, GMS seems to be set up to refine the grid on the basis of points, but there seems to be no option to refine the grid over a specified area by using a polygon. This option is available for unstructured grids but not for structured grids. Why is this? Or did I not find the method to do this?

The structured and unstructured grids are really, really different. Refinement using a polygon, arc, or point works on unstructured grids (this was first implemented to support quadtree/octtree grids). For structured grids, currently there is only refinement from points.
