Strategy of Triangulating Surface of the Hollow Cylinder


Article Preview

This paper is involved in triangulating surface of the hollow cylinder. The strategy is proposed for generating surface triangulation elements for the hollow cylinder at first. The strategy of adjusting the surface triangulation elements which are adjacent to the crossing cures in the hollow cylinder, is discussed. The computer implementation on the strategy proposed in this paper is given and the numerical example is performed. The example of the hollow cylinder verifies the correctness of the strategy proposed in this paper.
