Construction of Quasi-Structured Locally Modified Grids for Solving Problems of High Current Electronics

V.M. Sveshnikov, D.O. Belyaev
An algorithm for constructing quasi-structured grids, which consist of the uniform rectangular subgrids and are built in two stages, is considered. At first, the computational domain is covered by a uniform rectangular macrogrid, and then an original uniform rectangular subgrid is set for each macroelement. It is essential that subgrids can be inconsistent. By adjusting a density of the subgrid nodes an adaptation of the quasi-structured grid to inhomogeneities within the domain is achieved. To adapt the grid to the exterior boundary we make local modifications consisting in a shift of the near boundary nodes to the boundary. Here we propose the algorithm of the local modification to construct a quasi-structured grid of high quality which does not break a subgrid structuring. The suggested quasi-structured grids profitably differ from structured grids in that they do not require extra nodes to support structuring and, also, storing a large amount of information as for unstructured ones. The solution of boundary value problems for quasi-structured grids is found by a decomposition of the computational domain into subdomains without overlapping. This method can be easily parallelized and, therefore, used to carry out calculations on multiprocessor supercomputers.
