Adaptive Mesh Refinement (AMR)Computational Fluid Dynamics

Developing codes using adaptive mesh refinement is a major undertaking. Nevertheless, several investigators have undertaken such efforts. The products are either:

•  Libraries that can be integrated with other codes, or

•  Complete codes

A major challenge for AMR codes has traditionally been to ensure efficient running on parallel computers.

Before embarking on writing an AMR code, investing time in finding out if something that meets one’s need is likely to be a wise decision.

UnstructuredGrids

Computational Fluid Dynamics

Grid generation for complex geometries is usually a major task, requiring both large amount of time and money. Structured grids generally lead to fast and accurate flow solvers and are therefore preferred where the cost of generating the grid is not excessive.

For situations where the complexity of the domain is such that grid generation is very expensive and where the user can live with modest accuracy, unstructured grids are generally used.

Computational Fluid Dynamics

Sometimes it is not possible to maintain a regular layout of the grid. In those cases it is necessary to use UNSTRUCTURED grids where the connectivity of the grid is part of the data structure. In some case it is possible to use hexahedron cells but in other cases we need more irregularly shaped control volumes.

Or other polyhedron

Unstructured Grids

Computational Fluid Dynamics

Unstructured versus structured grids

structured grids: an ordered layout of

grid points.

unstructured grids: an arbitrary layout of grid

points. Information about the layout must be provided

Unstructured GridsComputational Fluid Dynamics

Since the points are laid out in an irregular unstructured way, the point location and connectivity must be stored

Unstructured grids can consist of arbitrarily shaped control volumes but tetrahedrons (pyramids) and

hexahedrons (boxes) are most common

Unstructured Grids

Computational Fluid Dynamics

For a cell based scheme each cell is a control volume and we solve for the average values in each cell

Cell

Edge

Face

Unstructured GridsComputational Fluid Dynamics

While it may seems straight forward to use the polyhedron as a control volume, for time dependent problems this results in a a coupling between the nodal points. The mass in the control volume at t+Δt is, for example:

Al =

12

xA yB − xA yc + xB yC − xB yA + xC yA − xC yB

l A

B

C

Ml

n+1 = Al ρAn+1 + ρB

n+1 + ρCn+1( )

Unstructured Grids

Computational Fluid Dynamics

For vertex based schemes a control volume is constructed by dividing up the cells next to the vertex

Cell

Edge

FaceThe cells can be divided by drawing a line perpendicular to each edge. The corners of the control volume are where two such lines intersect.

Or, we can connect the center of each triangle and the center of the vertex

Computational Fluid Dynamics

The finite volume method is usually used to derive numerical approximations for unstructured grids. However, finite element methods and “mesh free” methods also use unstructured grids

For the full Euler and the Navier-Stokes equations, the numerical approximations are derived in the same way as for for finite volume methods on body fitted grids.

While hexahedrons and tetrahedrons are the most common shapes for the control volumes, any shape is possible.

Unstructured Grids

Computational Fluid Dynamics

Generation of unstructured grids

Computational Fluid Dynamics

Grid based generation of unstructured meshesStart with a regular mesh. Split rectangles and move grid points to confirm to boundaries

Octree meshingInstead of starting with a regular grid, split cells into four cells (in 2D) until grid is refined enough.

Often the size of the triangles is determined by a mesh function that changes from one point in the domain to another

Triangulated grids

Computational Fluid Dynamics

Advancing front method: Start at the boundaries and keep adding points until you run into the grid from other boundaries

Triangulated gridsComputational Fluid Dynamics

A number of algorithms exist to generate Delauny triangulation. Most are based on starting with a coarse grid and then refine it. Usually points are inserted and the triangles around the new point are reconstructed to be a Delauny triangulation.

Triangulated grids

Computational Fluid Dynamics

Generation of unstructured triangular grids:

A Delaunay triangulation of a set of points is defined so that no points fall within the circle defined by the three points of a triangle

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Delaunay_triangulation

Triangulated gridsComputational Fluid Dynamics

Delaunay triangulation: By reconnecting the points, we can construct a valid triangulation

Not a Delaunay triangulation: Points fall within the circle that goes through the points defining the triangle

Triangulated grids

Computational Fluid Dynamics

Hybrid Meshes

Sometimes it is convenient to keep hexahedron control volumes near a boundary to better resolve boundary layers, even if the rest of the domain is gridded using tetrahedrons

Unstructured grids

Originally, triangular grid were developed for the compressible Euler equations. Approximating the viscous fluxes and enforcing incompressibility is more complex. For boundary layer like flow, sometimes hybrid tetrahedron/hexahedron grids have been advocated

•  The goal of computations and simulations is to produce results that usually need to be examined in some way.

•  A visualization is usually an important part of this analysis.

•  For computations of small systems using matlab the visualization is sometimes part of the computations. In most cases, however, the data needs to be stored in output files

•  The format of the files needs to be compatible with the analysis and visualization software used

•  The data can be stored as either ascii or binary files. Usually the former is used for smaller files and during development and the latter during production runs.

http://www.nd.edu/~gtryggva/CFD-Course/Computational Fluid Dynamics

•  Several efforts have been made to standardize output formats, allowing for structured and unstructured grids and a variety of data types.

•  In many cases this involves not only the format but also libraries to generate and read the files

•  Such effort include the Hierarchical Data Format (HDF) of which HDF5 is the latest version, and software libraries, such as NetCDF (Network Common Data Form) for array data.

•  The most commonly used ones are open source formats developed by US Government agencies

•  In addition, various commercial vendors have promoted various formats

SILOSilo is a library which implements an application programing interface (API) designed for reading and writing a wide variety of scientific data to binary, disk files. The files Silo produces and the data within them can be easily shared and exchanged between wholly independently developed applications running on disparate computing platforms. Consequently, the Silo API facilitates the development of general purpose tools for processing scientific data. One of the more popular tools that process Silo data files is the VisIt visualization tool. (from the Silo Users Manual)

One of the simplest formats that is widely used is the Visualization Toolkit (VTK) supported by Kitware. VTK is “VTK supports a wide variety of visualization algorithms including scalar, vector, tensor, texture, and volumetric methods, as well as advanced modeling techniques such as implicit modeling, polygon reduction, mesh smoothing, cutting, contouring, and Delaunay triangulation. VTK has an extensive information visualization framework and a suite of 3D interaction widgets. The toolkit supports parallel processing and integrates with various databases”

Turbulence are intrinsically linked to vorticity, yet laminar flows can also be vortical so looking at the vorticity is not sufficient to understand what is going on in a turbulent flows. Several attempts have been made to define properties of the turbulent flows that identifies vortices (as opposed to simply vortical flows.

One of the most successful method is the lambda-2 method of Hussain.
