Industrial applications require both the development of techniques to generate appropriate computational meshes and the development of discretization schemes compatible with whatever type of mesh is chosen. The principal alternatives are Cartesian meshes, body-fitted curvilinear meshes, and unstructured tetrahedral meshes. Each of these approaches has some advantages that have led to their use. This chapter addresses the development of methods suitable for topologically complex domains.
