Generation of Quad-dominant Meshes

This section extends the direct approach of the triangulation of 3D surfaces presented in Sections Direct Triangulation of 3D Surfaces and Triangulation of Discrete 3D Surfaces to the generation of mixed quad-dominant 3D surface meshes. The approach is then further extended for the generation of all-quadrilateral meshes. The main focus is laid on reusing the existing triangular mesh generator based on the AFT subjected to some minor modifications instead of developing a complex strategy for a new quadrilateral mesh generator.
