# Finite-Volume CFD Procedure and Adaptive Error Control Strategy for Grids of Arbitrary Topology

@article{Muzaferija1997FiniteVolumeCP, title={Finite-Volume CFD Procedure and Adaptive Error Control Strategy for Grids of Arbitrary Topology}, author={Samir Muzaferija and David Gosman}, journal={Journal of Computational Physics}, year={1997}, volume={138}, pages={766-787} }

This paper outlines the development and application of a solution-adaptive local grid refinement procedure for numerical fluid dynamic calculations in complex domains involving body-fitted unstructured meshes. A new space discretization practice and an error estimation technique were developed to facilitate adaptive space discretization (h-refinement) using cells of arbitrary topology. The methodology enables implicit, consistent, and uniform treatment throughout the entire computational domain…
