# GfsRefineSolid

### From Gerris

GfsRefineSolid will refine any cell intersected by an embedded solid boundary down to the specified number of levels.

The syntax in parameter files is

[ GfsRefine ]

GfsRefineSolid also creates a new derived variable `SolidCurvature`

which contains the maximum of the mean surface curvature for the fragment of embedded surface contained in a cell. If the mean curvature in a cell cannot be computed — for example because several non-connected fragments of surface intersect the cell — the value of `SolidCurvature`

is set to 1/(cell size).

`SolidCurvature`

can be used to refine an embedded surface according to its mean curvature using for example

RefineSolid { if (SolidCurvature > 0.) { /* compute the level so that (radius of curvature) > 5*(cell size) */ gint l = log(SolidCurvature/0.2)/log(2.); return l < 8 ? 8 : l > 12 ? 12 : l; } else return 8; }
