Abstract: Abstract. Preparing a CAD model for Finite Element (FE) analysis can be a time-consuming task, where shape and mesh simplifications play an important role. It is important that the simplified model has the same mechanical properties as the original one, and that the deviation from the original stays within a given tolerance. Most FE mesh simplification algorithms are either fully or partially sequential, and are therefore not suitable for architectures with high levels of parallelism. Furthermore, the use of …
