    FDMP-Fluid Dynamics & Materials Processing, Vol.3, No.1, pp. 49-64, 2007, DOI:10.3970/fdmp.2007.003.049

    Abstract An adaptive phase field model for the solidification of binary alloys in three space dimensions is presented. The fluid flow in the liquid due to different liquid/solid densities is taken into account. The unknowns are the phase field, the alloy concentration and the velocity/pressure in the liquid. Continuous, piecewise linear finite elements are used for the space discretization, a semi-implicit scheme is used for time discretization. An adaptive method allows the number of degrees of freedom to be reduced, the mesh tetrahedrons having high aspect ratio whenever needed. Numerical results show that our method is effective and allows to perform… More >

    Non-Graded Adaptive Grid Approaches to the Incompressible Navier-Stokes Equations

    FDMP-Fluid Dynamics & Materials Processing, Vol.3, No.1, pp. 37-48, 2007, DOI:10.3970/fdmp.2007.003.037

    Abstract We describe two finite difference schemes for simulating incompressible flows on nonuniform meshes using quadtree/octree data structures. The first one uses a cell-centered Poisson solver that yields first-order accurate solutions, while producing symmetric linear systems. The second uses a node-based Poisson solver that produces second-order accurate solutions and second-order accurate gradients, while producing nonsymmetric linear systems as the basis for a second-order accurate Navier-Stokes solver. The grids considered can be non-graded, i.e. the difference of level between two adjacent cells can be arbitrary. In both cases semi-Lagrangian methods are used to update the intermediate fluid velocity in a standard projection… More >
