26.13 Improving the Grid by Smoothing and Swapping

Smoothing and face swapping are tools that complement grid adaption, increasing the quality of the final numerical mesh. Smoothing repositions the nodes and face swapping modifies the cell connectivity to achieve these improvements in quality.


Face swapping is applicable only to grids with triangular or tetrahedral cells.


Smoothing and face swapping are available only for serial cases, not for parallel cases.

Both, smoothing and swapping are performed using the Smooth/Swap Grid panel (Figure  26.13.1).
