In this paper, an automatic data clustering approach is presented using some concepts of the graph theory. Some Cluster Validity Index (CVI) is mentioned, and DB Index is defined as the objective function of meta-heuristic algorithms. Six Finite Element meshes are decomposed containing two- and three- dimensional types that comprise simple and complex meshes. Six meta-heuristic algorithms are utilized to determine the optimal number of clusters and minimize the decomposition problem. Finally, corresponding statistical results are compared.
