An Adaptive Mesh Refinement Method, Based on Gershgorin Circle Theorem
Abstract— A new algorithm of dynamic local Adaptive Mesh Refinement (AMR) with support for
arbitrary unstructed meshes, as well as for two and three dimensional computation is developed.
The new mesh adaptation based on the discretization matrix eigenvalues estimation by Gershgorin
Circle Theorem. The implementation of the algorithm is done within the framework of the
OpenFOAM library for Computational Continuum Mechanics (CCM) using C++ programming
language with modern policy based design for high program code modularity. It is possible to
combine mesh adaptation criteria. Two numerical examples illustrate the effectiveness of new
adaptive mesh refinement algorithm.
