Abstract
Systems and methods for compressing and/or decompressing data corresponding to 3D finite element meshes are provided. Preferably, a method for encoding data corresponding to connectivity information of a 3D finite element mesh, with the mesh being formed of tetrahedra, includes the steps of: providing data corresponding to connectivity information of the 3D finite element mesh, and; reconfiguring the data based upon identification of faces of each of the tetrahedra where other tetrahedra are to be attached.
