## structured grid

[¦strək·chərd ′grid]
(mathematics)
In the discretization of partial differential equations, an organized set of points formed by the intersections of the lines of a boundary-conforming curvilinear coordinate system, at which the equations are expressed in discrete form.

In the case of JS Bach, at least, you can expect compositions that rise through the mathematically structured grid of point-counterpoint to arrive at something that is, even for many atheists of contemporary chamber music, "sublime.
Around each 2D section, a structured grid made of 101075 quadrilateral cells has been constructed (average cell count; exact number depends on the 2D section).
However, some of the fastest and most accurate CFD codes can be difficult to apply to complicated geometry because they require a highly structured grid of cells.

Structured grids can be more efficient, but in practice small errors and inconsistencies can spoil a structured grid.
Engineers used a preprocessor to generate a 3-D multiple block and structured grid of the complex scroll geometry, and used computational fluid dynamics software to model flow around the exterior and through the interior of the scroll.
Automated meshes The mapped meshes used in traditional CFD systems entail structured grid geometries that are very labor intensive to create.
CFD simulations with structured grids might give faster solutions compared to unstructured grids, but it is usually not possible to generate structured grids for complex geometries or for CFD models with complicated movement.
The most efficient kind of structured grids are the grids that comply with the limits of the researched space.
