For homogeneous systems like classical fluid dynamics and structural mechanics, finite element method (FEM) grid generation has reached a mature state. On the other hand, for multi-physics-problems like fluids with a high density of immersed particles, many researchers may not even be aware of the types of instabilities which may be triggered by unsuitable meshes. We review common types of grid generation, point out previously unrecognised types of instabilities for particles in fluids as well as remedies to obtain particle-fluid simulations with higher stability and fewer redundant degrees of freedom.
