26.8.3 Performing Volume Adaption

You will perform volume adaption in the Volume Adaption panel (Figure  26.8.4).

Adapt $\rightarrow$ Volume...

Figure 26.8.4: The Volume Adaption Panel

The procedure for performing volume adaption is as follows:

1.   In the Volume Adaption panel, specify whether you want to adapt based on volume magnitude or volume change by selecting the Magnitude or Change option.

2.   Click on Compute to update the Min and Max fields. These fields will show the range of cell volumes or cell volume changes (defined in Section  26.8.1), depending on your selection in step 1.

3.   Set the Max Volume or Max Volume Change value.

(a)   If you have chosen to adapt based on volume Magnitude, cells that have volumes greater than Max Volume will be marked or refined.

(b)   If you are adapting based on volume Change, cells with volume changes greater than Max Volume Change will be marked or refined.

4.   (optional) If you want to set any adaption options (described in Section  26.12), click on the Controls... button to open the Grid Adaption Controls panel.

5.   Click Mark to mark the cells for refinement by placing them in an adaption register (which can be manipulated as described in Section  26.11.1), or click Adapt to perform the refinement immediately.
