Abstract ARANEA is a program that automatically generates unstructured triangular meshes on two-dimensional planar domains. The program implements a Graphics User Interface (GUI) that enables the user to read, edit and save a number of components required in the construction of a mesh. The program is written in JAVA, version 1.1. It is useful for constructing meshes of the type required to solve partial differential equations with finite elements over complex two-dimensional domains. Title of program: Aranea Catalogue Id: ADOG_v1_0 Nature of problem Several physical problems can be described in terms of coupled partial equations in two dimensions. This is the case, for example, with plasma particle and energy transport in axisymmetric tokamaks, or with the evolution of vorticity in non neutral electron cylinders. At the basis of solution of such equations is a discretisation of the governing equations on a given mesh. Aranea is a code that automatically generates unstructured triangular meshes in two dimensional plane geometry, with arbitra ...
