Dynamic mesh adaption in shockwaves simulations

  • 1 Wroclaw University of Science and Technology


The goal of the article is to compare the accuracy and computational time of the shock wave simulations, using the stand ard, structured mesh and the dynamic mesh adaption. The coarse and fine mesh will be compared with the dynamically adapted mesh in terms of computational time and accuracy. Based on the results, histograms depicting computational time will be created. The simulation, on which those meshes will be examined will be a simple, two-dimensional oblique shock wave forming over a wedge inclined at 15°, with the Mach number at the domain inlet being equal to 2. The adaption will be based upon the pressure gradient criterion.
