We essentially have 5D problems (3 space and 2 additional independent variables). Can you be more specific about "additional independent variables"?

The implication of our hrefinement scheme for the nonspace coordinates is that we have a varying number of unknowns per spatial element to deal with (may be highly variable from 8 to hundreds of unknowns). > Can Libmesh handle this situation? Libmesh can do subdomainrestricted variables, but that may not be finegrained enough for what you are attempting.  John
