EDGE-V is a tool prepare meshes for use in the core solver EDGE. It includes the following key features:

  • Parsing of velocity models and performing respective mesh annotations.
  • Derivation of background fields with target-edge lengths for problem-aware meshing.
  • Derivation of optimal Local Time Stepping (LTS) groups.
  • LTS-aware partitioning.
  • Mesh reordering based on the partitioning and time step groups.
  • Splitting of the mesh into separate per-partition chunks and derivation of respective annotations, e.g., the communication structure, for use in EDGE.


Similar to the core-solver, EDGE-V is controlled by XML-configurations. This part of the documentation has to be written still. The La Habra mesh setups might serve as an example for seismic settings.
