Mesh adaptation by modifying the node positions*

  • S. Dufour (a1), G. Vinsard (a1) and B. Laporte (a1)


An adaptive meshing technique is proposed. For a given number of nodes, the method allows a better precision, with a better repartition of the position of the nodes. It is based on the analysis of the influence of the node position and edge connection on the functional of the problem.
