The local redistribution of points along curves for numerical grid generation
Abstract
A methodology is established to cluster points along curves in a manner which does not change the existing pointwise distribution outside of a specific region containing the cluster. In each instance, points are pulled from the perimeters of the region towards the cluster center. The result is a smooth expansion from each end followed by a compression into the center. Altogether, this represents a local redistribution of points which can be employed either interactively or automatically.
