PhD position : hex mesh generation

Two PhD studentships opportunities are available at the Universite catholique de
Louvain in Belgium for outstanding candidates.
The aim of the project is to develop a novel approach for generating
dominant hex meshes for general/complex 3D models. The approach will be based
both a generalisation of Lloyd's algorithm and on the resolution of some kind of
PDE in the domain in order to compute distances, curvatures, surface
geodesics... We look here for an indirect approach i.e. we first generate the
points and then reconnect them. All the developments will be done in the
framework of gmsh (
Successfull candidates should have a strong background in applied
mathematics/numerical methods for CFD. Some knownledge of mesh generation
techniques is (of course) a plus. A good knowledge of the C++ language is mandatory.
Further information can be obtained from both Pr. Remacle and Pr. Marchandise, and
In your application, please include:
- a CV summarizing academic performance including grades and rankings.
- at least two reference persons.
If successful, the scholarship can commence in late 2010.

With the addition of the Hex mesh generation, Gmsh will be even better!
