Prof. Christoph Geuzaine, Ph.D. - Recent Developments in Gmsh

Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, University of Liege, Belgium


Gmsh ( is an open source finite element mesh generator with built-in pre- and post-processing facilities. Under continuous development for the last two decades, it has become the de facto standard for open source finite element mesh generation, with a large user community in both academia and industry. In this talk I will present an overview of Gmsh, and highlight recent developments including the support for constructive solid geometry, new robust and parallel meshing algorithms, flexible solver integration and a new multi-language Application Programming Interface. Time permitting I will also present an overview of current research directions for meshing based on the solution of partial differential equations: from surface remeshing to frame-based hex-meshing.
