Abstract: A computing system is described herein, where the computing system includes a processor and memory storing instructions that, when executed by the processor, cause the processor to perform the following acts: 1) receiving a computer-implemented definition of an enclosed geometric domain, wherein the geometric domain is two-dimensional; 2) determining locations of seeds for the enclosed geometric domain; 3) decomposing the enclosed geometric domain into a conforming Voronoi mesh based on the locations of the seeds, wherein the conforming Voronoi mesh comprises Voronoi cells, and further wherein the conforming Voronoi mesh is bounded by the enclosed domain; and 4) performing a numerical simulation to generate simulation results, wherein the numerical simulation is based on at least one Voronoi cell in the Voronoi cells of the conforming Voronoi mesh.
