We present a method to compute the true validity of hexahedra in an efficient manner. More than 6 million hexahedra are analyzed on a single core per second.

We developed a method to very efficiently combine the elements of a tetrahedral mesh into hexahedra. The new vertex based algorithm builds all the feasible potential hexahedra under given quality constraints. Around 3 millions of potential hexahedra are generated in 10 seconds. A greedy combination is used to compute the final hex-dominant mesh.
From next Tuesday, 28th of March, we will be in Lanzarote, Spain for the Third Gmsh workshop . Join us if you are close by!
