Mesh adaptive ALE numerical simulation
Participants : Frédéric Alauzet [correspondant] , Nicolas Barral, Adrien Loseille.
Running highly accurate numerical simulations with moving geometries is still a challenge today due to their prohibitive cost in CPU time. Using anisotropic mesh adaptation is one way to drastically reduce the size of the problem and to reach the desired accuracy. Previously, we have developed an ALE formulation using mesh connectivity change in order to achieve any complex displacement. Then, this method has been coupled with the unsteady anisotropic mesh adaptation using the fixed-point algorithm. The key point of this work is the use of an ALE metric that takes into account the mesh motion in the metric field definition.
