There are basically two types of meshes: structured and unstructured. A structured mesh consists of horizontal and vertical lines that cross orthogonally at intersections called nodes. This constraint is best achieved by discretizing a physical domain that is defined by square or rectangular boundaries – the physical domain becomes the computational domain as well. Much of the early numerical simulations were conducted on problems that were first reduced to rectangular physical systems of interest.
