 October 12, 2005, 21:30 reinitialization of level set on non-uniform #1 wu Guest   Posts: n/a Can anybody share their experience about reinitialization of level set on non-uniform, non-orthogonal grids? Since I have trouble implementing them. Any suggestion about reference is more than welcome. Thanks a lot. Wu

When people do FD in curvilinear coordinates, they always use coordinate transformation. What you need is only some derivatives, so a transformation may help. Good luck. Pete

 October 14, 2005, 17:49 Re: reinitialization of level set on non-uniform #4 Einstein Guest   Posts: n/a why do you need to use a level set method for non uniform and non orthgonal mesh. I was under the impression that level sets are used for solving complex geometry in cartesian mesh. Can u plz give me an example ast why u r adopting such a method!!!

I guess the use of non-uniform(orthogonal) mesh is because of some complex geometries. If you want to use cartesian mesh for complex geometries, maybe immersed boundary method is the only choice? I think level set on cartesian mesh can't simulate complex geometries.

People have used Cartesian Mesh with restructuring or refining of grid. I have Sethian's book, and a whole lot of papers on LSM, so, I will check out and let you know if there is any on Non-orthogonal mesh, or if Sethian has described something related to that, as I never cared if someone is using Non-orthogonal mesh or not.

 October 17, 2005, 12:36 Re: reinitialization of level set on non-uniform #8 wu Guest   Posts: n/a Thank all of you. Yeah, that's what I'm doing. Using the fixed amount of grids, puting more grids around interface, solving coordinate transformed equations by FD, the problem came out after dozens of time steps, that's why I started to wonder what the problem is, due to the grid shape or errors associated with numerical methods. I don't have paper about level set by using FD. Sorry for not showing the link. Thanks Kim for the link. Wu
