Grid Project:   Electric Field Torus

Grid Team Member: Carl Gable
Grid Versions: Version 1

Delivered To: ???
Date Completed: Sept. 1998

Purpose of Project

The goal is to create a mesh that follows the closed curve defining a torus. This is accomplished using two different methods. One method used octree refinement to refine a regular mesh around the torus. The other method is to create an unstructured mesh around the torus line.
