Use of Adaptive Finite Elements for Compressible Flow

Document Type



Adaptive mesh refinement procedures with finite elements have been used for some time in computing compressible high-speed flows. Mesh refinement procedures for triangular finite element meshes were initially detailed by Zienkiewicz et al. Applications of these procedures to compressible flow have been extensively demonstrated by Ramakrishnan et al. Adaptive procedures for finite element meshes with quadrilateral elements are discussed in Oden et al. and Shapiro and Murman.
