FEM - mesh generator, transition elements

    FEM -- mesh generator, transition elements


    I would like to implement 2D mesh generator. Mesh should consists of triangle and rectangle elements and those triangle elements will play a role of transition elements. The example of such mesh is here: http://pkow.pl/transition_element.jpg. I'm looking for an algorithm to generate such mesh (in books, web sites -- doesn't matter). Maybe you could help me?

    Re: FEM -- mesh generator, transition elements

    There's plenty of open source info for example amongst these:


    At 1st sight if you want to work in 2D most mesh generation routines ought to suit your needs, can provide some more theoretical info if interested.
