We study the interplay between the local geometric properties and the non-blowup of the 3D incompressible Euler equations. We consider the interaction of two perturbed antiparallel vortex tubes using Kerr's initial condition [14][Phys. Fluids 5 (1993), 1725]. We use a pseudo-spectral method with resolution up to 1536 × 1024 × 3072 to resolve the nearly(More)
We study locally self-similar solutions of the three dimensional incompressible Navier-Stokes equations. The locally self-similar solutions we consider here are different from the global self-similar solutions. The self-similar scaling is only valid in an inner core region that shrinks to a point dynamically as the time, t, approaches a possible singularity(More)

This work presents the first effort in designing a moving mesh algorithm to solve the incompressible Navier–Stokes equations in the primitive variables formulation. The main difficulty in developing this moving mesh scheme is how to keep it divergence-free for the velocity field at each time level. The proposed numerical scheme extends a recent moving grid(More)
In this paper, sharp a posteriori error estimators are derived for a class of distributed elliptic optimal control problems. These error estimators are shown to be useful in adaptive finite element approximation for the optimal control problems and are implemented in the adaptive approach. Our numerical results indicate that the sharp error estimators work(More)
A framework for adaptive meshes based on the Hamilton–Schoen–Yau theory was proposed by Dvinsky. In a recent work (2001, J. Comput. Phys. 170, 562– 588), we extended Dvinsky's method to provide an efficient moving mesh algorithm which compared favorably with the previously proposed schemes in terms of simplicity and reliability. In this work, we will(More)
This paper deals with the application of a moving grid method to the solution of a phase-field model for dendritic growth in two-and three-dimensions. A mesh is found as the solution of an optimization problem that automatically includes the boundary conditions and is solved using a multi-grid approach. The governing equations are discretized in space by(More)
