The Meshing application combines the features that do not belong to any specific physical module (be it fluid, thermal or structural applications), but can be used in conjunction with either of them. Basically Meshing application contains interfaces with meshers (Triangle, Tetgen, Nestor) and Mapping utilities, that permit data transfer from one mesh to another.

Meshing application is of particular importance for the problems that use moving meshes, specially the Particle Finite Element Method (PFEM), where mesh re-creation is obligatory at each time step.

Different versions of interfaces accounting for different problem requirements are listed in the next section.
