5.1.5. Mesh Refiner

The parameters on this tab give you control over the mesh refinement step of the adaptive mesh refinement (AMR) process.

Parameter Name

Description

Target Mesh Growth Fraction

This quantity controls how rapidly the mesh element count increases during the AMR process, with the element count increasing by approximately this fraction between successive AMR iterations. Larger fractions cause more rapid convergence of the solution, in terms of the iteration count, but may result in excessive runtime and memory usage.

Enable Refining

Controls whether the elements can be made smaller in any portion of the mesh during adaptive mesh refinement. This must be set to true for adaptive mesh refinement to work as designed.

Enable Coarsening

Controls whether the elements can be made larger in any portion of the mesh during adaptive mesh refinement.
