32.5.1 Adapt/Boundary...

The Adapt/Boundary... menu item opens the Boundary Adaption panel.



Boundary Adaption Panel


The Boundary Adaption panel allows you to mark or refine boundary cells on selected boundary zones. See Section  26.3 for details.

Options   contains three different methods for boundary adaption:

Cell Distance   enables adaption based on a cell's distance from the boundary, measured in number of cells. See Section  26.3.1 for details.

Normal Distance   enables adaption based on a cell's normal distance from the boundary. See Section  26.3.1 for details.

Volume Distance   enables adaption based on a target boundary volume and growth factor. See Section  26.3.1 for details.

Contours...   opens the Contours panel, which you can use to determine the appropriate parameters for the boundary adaption.

Manage...   opens the Manage Adaption Registers panel, which allows you to display and manipulate adaption registers that are generated using the Mark command.

Controls...   opens the Grid Adaption Controls panel, which allows you to control certain aspects of the adaption process.

Number of Cells   sets the maximum boundary cell distance for adaption (used with the Cell Distance option.

Distance Threshold   sets the maximum normal distance for adaption (used with the Normal Distance option).

Boundary Volume   sets the boundary volume $V_{\rm boundary}$ in Equation  26.3-1 (used with the Volume Distance option).

Growth Factor   sets the exponential growth factor $\alpha$ in Equation  26.3-1 (used with the Volume Distance option).

Boundary Zones   contains a selectable list of zones on which you can refine. The boundary cells associated with the zones that you select will be refined.

Adapt   refines the cells with edges/faces on the zones selected in the Boundary Zones list.

Mark   marks the boundary cells associated with the zones selected in the Boundary Zones list for refinement. This command produces an adaption register. For information on using adaption registers, see Section  26.11.1.
