Solution of thermo-fluid problems with local approach –Local Radial Basis Function Collocation Method –Local pressure velocity coupling presented at FEF 2007 ∙Classical De Wahl Davis benchmark (Kosec, Šarler, 2008) (FEF2007) ∙Natural convection in porous media (Kosec, Šarler, 2008) ∙Meshless Approach to Solving Freezing with Natural Convection (Kosec, Šarler, in review) ∙Convection Driven Melting of Anisotropic Metals (Kosec, Šarler, in print) ∙Melting driven by natural convection (Kosec, Šarler, to be submitted) Extension of the method to the dynamic node configuration –Present work –Other’s research in the field (Libre, 2008, Bozzini, 2002, Gomez, 2006, Sarra, 2005, Schaback, 2000) Principal incitement –How to make LRBFCM h-adaptive in a most simple and effective way?
Local Radial Basis Functions Collocation Method Basis functions: Hardy’s multiquadrics LRBFCM RBF basis augmentation in order to improve the method, various functions might be included in the collocation basis. Constant and linear functions are added in the present work in order to enhance the method at the small sub- domain nodal distances regime. - Shape parameter - Spatial coordinate
The performance of the LRBFCM One-dimensional analysis is performed to asses the method’s behavior –The exponential function is taken as a test function Discretisation errors of the first and second derivatives are analyzed With respect to –The sub-domain nodal distances –The shape parameter C –Comparison of augmented to non-augmented LRBFCM - RBFCM representation - Exact values
Discretisation error of the derivatives. With respect to the nodal distance and shape parameter for non-augmented LRBFCM
Second derivative error. Comparison of non-augmented to the augmented LRBCM
The adaptation criteria An efficient criteria for adding and/or removing of the nodes is required –Derivatives calculation error extrapolation –Error predictor based on the shape of the field and/or properties of the numerical method The LRBFCM predictor –Based on the norm of LRBFCM collocation coefficients –No need for additional computation –Behaviour with respect to the spatial sub-domain configuration is similar to the behaviour of the derivatives error –Small number of calculation operations (fast) –Robust and very simple to implement Number of sub-domain nodes LRBCM coefficients
Error prediction. Comparison of error prediction to the actual derivative error
The adaptation algorithm rules Node insertion rules –If P is above the limit value Pmax the node is requested to expand (construct new nodes around it) –Level difference with it’s neighbors after the expansion is not allowed to exceed one –New node (child) can be constructed only when none of the neighbors has it’s child on the same coordinate –All child nodes are positioned symmetrical around parent node in order to retain equidistant sub-domain for all adaptation levels Node removal rules –If P is below the limit value Pmin the node is requested to close (remove child nodes) –Level difference with it’s neighbors after closing is not allowed to exceed one –Child node is allowed to be removed only if none of the neighbor parent node is pointing to it
The sub domain configuration Two types of the sub-domains appear (normal/rotated) Five nodded sub-domain The neighbor's neighbor is not necessarily the same node All sub-domains are equidistant
First numerical example A two-dimensional time-dependent diffusion equation with Dirichlet boundary conditions All values are dimensionless Analytical solution

Second numerical example Convection dominated transport Neumann boundary conditions on all walls Adiabatic walls Initial state set to zero except on a small region where the initial state is one Circular velocity field High Peclet number (L – domain length) Results with velocity v after one revolution are compared with the results where the velocity is set to zero. The difference is introduced as a deviation Where and stands for simulation time (2π), temperature computed without advection term, temperature computed with the advection term.
Common settings Diffusivity is set to 2e-4 Domain size is 2x2 Boundary conditions and initial state are for all cases the same Explicit time stepping with time step dt=1e-5 Angular velocity is 1 and simulation time is 2π Case definitions Four different cases with different average nodes count through whole simulation Each case with adaptive node distribution (A) is compared to the case with static node distribution (S) with the same average nodes count.

Conclusions The developed algorithm is ready to be implemented in more complex physical systems Fluid mechanics with iterative pressure velocity coupling Extension to the multi-phase systems (phase field, level set formulations) Melting and freezing Solidification of a binary system... Issues that need further clarification: –Behavior of the LRBFCM near the nodal density jumps –Rotated domain inclusion effects –Setting the free parameter –Sub-domain size influence –Sub-domain shape influence –Multi-grid behavior
Further development Implementation of the developed adaptive numerical approach with completely local pressure velocity coupling in more complex systems The local fluid flow computational approach has been extensively tested with good agreement with other authors There are some difficulties in implementing it with the developed adaptation algorithm
