Day 1: Wednesday 24 June


Introduction to adaptive mesh refinement and mesh movement, Mateusz Gugala(QMUL):

Mesh-related problems in adjoint-based design optimisation, pinciples and approaches for mesh movement (r-refinement), overview of methods for local mesh refinement (h-refinement).

10:30-11:00 Coffee

Introduction to adjoint-based adaptive mesh refinement, Jens-Dominik Mueller (QMUL) - presentation :

One-shot methods review of existing approaches, Armen Jaworski (WUT) - presentation:

Conceptual and mathematical background of one-shot methods with mesh adaptation; Presentation of different approaches with examples.

15:30- 16:00 Coffee

Unstructured mesh adaptation applied to CFD simulation, Cécile Dobrzynski (INRIA, Bordeaux) - presentation:

Useful tools for mesh adaptation (metric tensor, quality measurement); Local remeshing including how to modify a triangulated surface in keeping a good approximation of the underlying surface

Day 2: Thursday 25 June

09:00- 10:30
