I usually just have some if statements or switch statements that get applied to each quadrature point on a boundary side. If your boundary conditions are applied on regions that don't precisely break down onto element boundaries, then that's what you have to do, but it's not a great idea for robust code, because it means your boundary conditions have to be hardcoded in C++. For more sophisticated software, what you want to do is set boundary_id values on boundary sides of your coarse mesh, then in your assembly routine call boundary_id() on each boundary side you iterate over. The library will make sure that the ids remain correct through refinement and coarsening. See example 13 or example 18.  Roy

Thanks Roy, for your reply. I have additional questions related to the aspect of boundary conditions with AMR. Is there a consistent way of handling the issue of applying dirichlet boundary conditions on a mesh that is being refined/coarsened? For instance, if a portion of the boundary has dirichlet bc applied to it, and gets refined, then the new nodes created inside that portion also should have the same bc applied to it. One way to do this is to check for nodes on that boundary and apply bc on them. Do you have a recommendation on this? Similarly, with the case of Neumann bcs...?

Hmmm.... I finally got my office setup at home... I should really put some time into getting my mesh smoother stuff in a working state and checked in... The problem is that WoW: Burning Crusade came out today ;) We'll see which one wins in the fight for my time....

What is the need for this? Mesh generators, as well as meshdistorting formulations for highdeformation mechanics problems, often produce meshes with elements that are more distorted than optimal for a finite element solver, or even too distorted to solve on at all. Running such a mesh through a good smoother algorithm is intended to fix that. A mesh smoother may affect boundary as well as interior nodes, just so long as the domain of the mesh remains relatively unchanged. In practice what I've seen is that smoothers will allow nodes to "slide" along flat boundaries, but will keep nodes on corners, edges, or curves pinned in place.  Roy

Hi, Kindly you help me with a hint about the basic concept of the MeshSmoother class? In my understanding, it does not affect the boundary nodes, but changes some of the domain interior node locations after a refinement/ coarsening. What is the need for this? Thanks, Manav

Hi, That environment variable INCLUDE is being used by the scripts but it doesn't understand the spaces. You don't want the Visual Studio includes anyway so just 'unset INCLUDE'. We have cygwin working (although I haven't tried with mpi or petsc), just a serial, static build so far. Including Petsc would be useful but we just haven't done it so far. It is also on my todo list to build for mingw, which just means writing code for a bit of unix specific stuff for threads and timing I think. Shane.

It breaks for me unless I set pc_factor_zeropivot 0, but that happens with a lot of libMesh problems, where our penalty methods confuse PETSc. Try that option and see how it works for you. That may not be the only thing you need to tweak, though. For one thing, you may also want to try adding more linear solves. 250 isn't a general rule, it's just something that worked well for that one problem and default mesh size.  Roy

Dear John, On Tue, 16 Jan 2007, John Peterson wrote: > Upon closer look at your code I finally noticed this part: > What does it do exactly? Well, it's the obstacle. I.e., in this case, a (large) square area is considered to be solid and fixed, i.e. u=0 in this area. The idea is that this acts as a noslip boundary condition at the boundary of the obstacle. Within the obstacle, I'm not interested in the NavierStokes quantities anyway. However, removing these cells from the grid might be problematic in my real application for two reasons: First, I have a second equation that has to be solved in the whole domain, including the obstacles. Second, the size, number, and shape of obstacles changes in time. > It can be quite tricky trying to > work with two different "penalty" values, in case they accidentily > end up in the same row. In my opinion, they can't happen to be in the same row in this case (except for extremly rough grids) since the obstacle is away from the boundary of the domain. Also, the behaviour of the program does not change if 1e7 is used for *all* penalties. However, if 1e10 is used for all penalties, then the computation with obstacle fails already on the 20x20 grid.

Dear Roy and John, thank you for your nearly simultaneous answer. (Did you use a stopwatch to get that right?) (: Actually, constraining away the onedimensional null space did not cure the problem in my case. Please find attached a modified version of my test program that includes John's code snippet. Again, all the (very little) places where the program differs from ex13 are marked with "qqq". The behaviour is the same as before, i.e. the program works well without obstacle (rough and fine grid), and it works well with obstacle on the rough grid (20x20), but it crashes with obstacle on the fine grid (100x100). I pinned the pressure to 100.0 at node 0, but pinning it to 0.0 instead does not change the problem. It would be nice if you at least tested whether this phenomenon also happens with your installation, in order to exclude version conflicts. Thank you very much in advance, Tim
