AbstractFour different automatic mesh generators capable of generating either triangular meshes or hybrid meshes of mixed element types have been used in the mesh generation process. The performance of these mesh generators were tested by applying them to the adaptive finite element refinement procedure. It is found that by carefully controlling the quality and grading of the quadrilateral elements, an increase in efficiency over pure triangular meshes can be achieved. Furthermore, if linear elements are employed, an optimal hybrid mesh can be obtained most economically by a combined use of the mesh coring technique suggested by Lo and Lau and a selective removal of diagonals from the triangular element mesh. On the other hand, if quadratic elements are used, it is preferable to generate a pure triangular mesh first, and then obtain a hybrid mesh by merging of triangles. © 1992.
