AB - © Springer International Publishing Switzerland 2015. In this article, we give an overview of a new technique for unstructured curvilinear boundary layer grid generation, which uses the isoparametric mappings that define elements in an existing coarse prismatic grid to produce a refined mesh capable of resolving arbitrarily thin boundary layers. We demonstrate that the technique always produces valid grids given an initially valid coarse mesh, and additionally show how this can be extended to convert hybrid meshes to meshes containing only simplicial elements.
