Netgen 5.0.0

NETGEN is an automatic 3d tetrahedral mesh generator. It accepts input from constructive solid geometry (CSG) or boundary representation (BRep) from STL file format. The connection to a geometry kernel allows the handling of IGES and STEP files. NETGEN contains modules for mesh optimization and hierarchical mesh refinement.

Accessing the software

To load the module:

$ module load apps/netgen/5.0.0

An example command to include in your job script:


Note that running netgen will search for an input file ng.tcl. This can be directed to by setting NETGENDIR accordingly. For example:

export NETGENDIR=${HOME}/netgen_input_files

Accessing Previous Versions

Wherever possible, previous versions of this application will be retained for continuity, especially for research projects that require a consistent version of the software throughout the project. Such versions, however, may be unsupported by IT Services or the applications vendor, and may be withdrawn at short or no notice if they can no longer run on the cluster - for example, essential operating system upgrades may be incompatible with old versions.

At present there are no previous versions of this application on the BlueBEAR service.
