Meshing Definition | What is Mesh Generation

Meshing -- or mesh generation -- is the process of generating polygonal or polyhedral mesh (i.e., the shape of the polygon/polyhedral is made up of multiple edges, faces and vertices).

Meshing is often used in software-based simulation for Finite Element Analysis (FEA) and Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD).
