26.2 Static Adaption Process

The adaption process is separated into two distinct tasks.

1.   The individual cells are marked for refinement or coarsening based on the adaption function, which is created from geometric and/or solution data.

2.   The cell is refined or considered for coarsening based on these adaption marks.

The primary advantages of this modularized approach are the abilities to create sophisticated adaption functions and to experiment with various adaption functions without modifying the existing mesh.


Write a case and data file before starting the adaption process. If you generate an undesirable grid, you can restart the process with the saved files.

Two different types of adaption are available in FLUENT:
