Abstract

This paper describes ongoing research into self-adaptive, parallel solution methods for CFD and radiation problems of interest to the nuclear industry. The main thrust of the research is reviewed. These methods apply to unstructured conforming finite element meshes in 2D (currently) and ultimately 3D. Benchmark applications to CFD and radiation propagation problems are presented.
