- XGEN is a triangular mesh generator running under
X-windows. The program is is especially suited to the generation of
high quality meshes in regions with complicated boundaries.

Mathematics, Johannes Kepler University, Linz, Austria.
- Unix/Linux type platforms. The source code requires
a C++ compiler.
- On application, from the
XGEN home page.
- XGEN uses a novel method to generate the unstructured
grid, based on the motion of microscopic charged particles (nodes)
inside a bounded vessel filled with a viscous fluid. Particles move
under Coulomb and frictional forces to reach an equilibrium state.
A manual (English) is available and the theoretical
background is described in a paper available from
Meshes can be used in the EULER CFD code.
