ADAPTIVE FINITE-ELEMENT METHODS FOR HIGH-SPEED COMPRESSIBLE FLOWS Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • We describe an adaptive finite element algorithm for solving the unsteady Euler equations. The finite element algorithm is based on a Taylor/Galerkin formulation and uses a very fast and efficient data structure to refine and unrefine the grid in order to optimize the approximation. We give a general version of the method which can be applied to moving grids with sliding interfaces and we present the results for a transient supersonic calculation of rotorstator interaction.
