Hi Christian,

maxLocalCells Max number of cells per processor during refinement
Basically it is a form of regulating how many cells do you actually want to be spent during the refinement process. Too many can have the following consequences:
  • Too much time spent doing nothing useful.
  • Too much refinement can actually introduce distortion the mesh. Saw this happen at least once.
Best regards,
Bruno
