For now, the threshold values $s_e$, $s_{ds}$, $s_{sm}$ and $s_{fl}$ are determined empirically by looking at the sensor distribution in the domain. Once these values are set, two .txt files are outputted, one that has the composites called VariablePComposites.txt and one with the expansions called VariablePExpansions.txt. These values have to copied into a new .xml file to create the adapted mesh.
\subsection{De-Aliasing Techniques}
Aliasing effects, arising as a consequence of the nonlinearity of the
underlying problem, need to be address to stabilise the simulations. Aliasing
appears when nonlinear quantities are calculated at an insufficient number of
quadrature points. We can identify two types of nonlinearities:
\item PDE nonlinearities, related to the nonlinear and quasi-linear fluxes.
\item Geometrical nonlinearities, related to the deformed/curves meshes.
We consider two de-aliasing strategies based on the concept of consistent integration:
\item Local dealiasing: It only targets the PDE-aliasing sources, applying a consistent integration of them locally.
\item Global dealiasing: It targets both the PDE and the geometrical-aliasing sources. It requires a richer quadrature order to consistently integrate the nonlinear fluxes, the geometric factors, the mass matrix and the boundary term.
Since Nektar++ tackles separately the PDE and geometric aliasing during the
projection and solution of the equations, to consistently
integrate all the nonlinearities in the compressible
NavierStokes equations, the quadrature points should
be selected based on the maximum order of the nonlinearities:
Q_{min}= P_{exp}+\frac{max(2P_{exp},P_{geom})}{2} + \frac{3}{2}
where $Q_{min}$ is the minimum required number of quadrature
points to exactly integrate the highest-degree of nonlinearity,
$P_{exp}$ being the order of the polynomial expansion and $P_{geom}$
being the geometric order of the mesh. Bear in mind thatwe are
using a discontinuous discretisation, meaning that aliasing
effect are not fully controlled, since the boundary terms
introduce non-polynomial functions into the problem.
To enable the global de-aliasing technique, modify the number of quadrature
points by:
<E COMPOSITE="[101]"
where \inltt{NUMMODES} corresponds to $P$+1, where $P$ is the order of the polynomial
used to approximate the solution. \inltt{NUMPOINTS} specifies the number of quadrature
