Default adaptive grids for compressible flow
Posts: n/a
i am currently using a unform grid in cell-centered approach to model a supersonic impinging jet. Does the use of an adaptive mesh complicate the numerical implementation considerably?

If you have an unstructured finite volume scheme, then no it doesn't matter, there's no change. If you have a structured grid, you must have the metrics transforming from physical to computational space, that's all.

Could you recommend some references for its implmentation?
