A moving grid finite-element method using grid deformation. (English) Zbl 0838.65093
The authors propose a new front tracking method, based on grid deformation in a streamline upwind Petrov-Galerkin finite element method, to generate an adaptive scheme suitable for application to convection-dominated transport equations. Their excellent results are experimented on well-defined problems.
