Paradigmatic error calculations for adaptive finite element approximations of convection dominated flows Academic Article uri icon


  • New error estimation techniques are described for two-dimensional convection-dominated flows. Examples of applications to linear convection problems are given. The methods are based on discontinuous finite-element techniques. Results show that conventional interpolation methods may lead to gross underestimates of actual error and be inadequate for use in adaptive methods.
