mesh adaptivity
Hello all! I'm sure most of us have come across mesh automatic adaptivity wonders in the literature as made popular by Fluent. I wonder if like function is available in Star-CD and if yes, how to do it?

Look into the AMG option..

It slows down the time spend on each iteration but eventually makes the residuals drop faster.

Re: mesh adaptivity
hey thanks!

I suppose u're thinking of this effect

I am more thinking of this method though (the dynamic one)

Other than manually refining the mesh, is there a dynamic or automatic way to do it, using plug-ins or that sort?
