Title: Efficient volume computation for three-dimensional hexahedral cells

Abstract

Currently, algorithms for computing the volume of hexahedral cells with ''ruled'' surfaces require a minimum of 122 FLOPs (floating point operations) per cell. A new algorithm is described which reduces the operation count to 57 FLOPs per cell. copyright 1988 Academic Press, Inc.
