Efficient multi-level adaption methods for unstructured polyhedral computational meshes. Southampton, UK, University of Southampton, 74pp.

The definition of a computational mesh uniquely suited to a given model is a difficult and time consuming process. Using spatial and flow property quality definitions a method has been developed to adapt and optimise any given mesh. Through complex data structures, efficient surface definition and statistical analysis efficient cellular and interface manipulation routines are initiated. Cellular fission/fusion, nodal convection and interface manipulation are detailed and benefits of the adaption listed. The development of such techniques into a fully automated grid generation process is discussed.
