Prof. Marco Picasso, Ph.D. - Adaptive Finite Element with Large Aspect Ratio

Mathematics Institute of Computational Science and Engineering, École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL), Switzerland



Adaptive finite elements with large aspect ratio have shown to be extremely efficient whenever the solution to the underlying pde has internal or boundary layers. The adaptive criteria can be based on anisotropic a posteriori error estimates, the involved interpolation constants being aspect ratio independent.


In this talk, some a posteriori error estimates and adaptive algorithms will be presented on academic problems (elliptic, parabolic and hyperbolic pde's). Numerical results on more challenging CFD problems will also be discussed.
