Abstract
Domain under consideration is divided into subdomains, and a local coordinate system is to be entered for each of them. Boundaries for each domain are approximated by "planes" in its coordinate system. An initial mesh is produced by intersecting with coordinate surfaces. Number o f nodal points is not more than 8 for each element. Distortions are absent. 3-D elements are not compatible. A special procedure is developed to combine them with 1-D and 2-D elements. For any problem under consideration only one initial mesh may be generated. With mesh iterative refining elements of the same kind are used.
