Title The EVEREST Initial Mesh Generator: Version 4.0
Abstract In this report we describe version 4.0 of the EVEREST Initial Mesh Generator (Inimsh) which forms part of the EVEREST semiconductor device modelling suite of programs. This module is responsible for producing the coarse initial mesh which can be used as the starting point for automatic mesh refinement in the Solver module. Hence only simple controls are provided to specify manual refinement of the initial mesh. The alternative mesh generator built into the Pre-processor module should be used for manual mesh construction. Only Inimsh is capable of meshing geometries that have planes which are not perpendicular to a major axis, as occurs if prisms or tetrahedra are used in the blocks definition of a device. The Inimsh mesh generator will produce a mixed mesh of hexahedral and tetrahedral elements. The more computationally efficient hexahedral elements are produced whenever possible, with tetrahedra used to resolve surfaces that are not parallel to a principle axis.
