In this paper, we present an adaptive multiresolution mesh representation exploring the computational differences of the CPU and the GPU. We build our representation considering a dense-polygon mesh simplified to a base mesh which stores the original geometry by means of an atlas structure. For both simplification and refinement processes, we present a hierarchical method based on stellar operators. During simplification, we compute local parametrizations to generate charts and an atlas structure to be used later in refinement. Unlike previous approaches, we employ the simplified mesh as our base domain in a novel atlas descriptor using a specialized halfedge data structure combined with our charts. Finally, we show that our mesh representation can be used to adaptively control the mesh resolution in CPU-GPU coupled applications, including mesh editing and visualization.

Free GPU computing nodes at hgpu.org

Registered users can now run their OpenCL application at hgpu.org. We provide 1 minute of computer time per each run on two nodes with two AMD and one nVidia graphics processing units, correspondingly. There are no restrictions on the number of starts.

The platforms are

Node 1
  • GPU device 0: nVidia GeForce GTX 560 Ti 2GB, 822MHz
  • GPU device 1: AMD/ATI Radeon HD 6970 2GB, 880MHz
  • CPU: AMD Phenom II X6 @ 2.8GHz 1055T
  • RAM: 12GB
  • OS: OpenSUSE 13.1
  • SDK: nVidia CUDA Toolkit 6.5.14, AMD APP SDK 3.0
Node 2
  • GPU device 0: AMD/ATI Radeon HD 7970 3GB, 1000MHz
  • GPU device 1: AMD/ATI Radeon HD 5870 2GB, 850MHz
  • CPU: Intel Core i7-2600 @ 3.4GHz
  • RAM: 16GB
  • OS: OpenSUSE 12.3
  • SDK: AMD APP SDK 3.0

Completed OpenCL project should be uploaded via User dashboard (see instructions and example there), compilation and execution terminal output logs will be provided to the user.
