Multigrid is a well known technique used to accelerate the convergence of linear system solutions. Using a multigrid strategy to solve non-linear problems improves the robustness and the convergence of each Newton step, the accelerating overall the whole process. In particular, larger time step can be considered. This of main importance when solving turbulent Navier-Stokes equations on complex geometries. First, we developed the classical multigrid method on non-nested meshes. Then, we have pointed out the similarity between the Full MultiGrid (FMG) algorithm and the mesh adaptation algorithm. We have proposed a new Adaptive Full MultiGrid algorithm which improve the overall robustness of the adaptive process and its overall efficiency  .
