An open-source implementation of an efficient mesh generation procedure for hybrid prismatic-tetrahedral meshes intended for use in Reynolds-averaged Navier-Stokes solutions is presented. The method employed combines the established, and very fast, Delaunay-based tetrahedral mesh generator TetGen with a novel technique for the creation of a prismatic layer. Satisfactory mesh quality is demonstrated by comparing solutions obtained using the new meshes with reference data computed on advancing-front grids. Mesh generation time is shown to be substantially less than with some other methods. Overall, the presented implementation is deemed a valuable tool for cases where many meshes need to be generated for routine analyses and turnaround time is critical. © 2014 The Authors.
