Step away from the grid: Novel methods and applications of mesh-free simulations for diverse geophysical processes





Session ID#: 24472

Session Description:
Mesh-free simulations provide an alternative to grid-based modeling techniques that avoid many of the numerical problems associated with Eulerian solution schemes. The concept of meshless simulations is not new but it has evolved significantly over time and now allows consideration of complex systems with chemical, electrical, and momentum based interactions, with or without the influence of an external field, providing unprecedented detail of the physical processes being simulated without the influence of a computational grid on the results. This session will provide a forum for sharing recent advances and applications of meshless simulations across diverse fields including surface water and groundwater flow, reactive solute transport, sediment transport, oceanic circulation, atmospheric flows, and chemical physics, among others. The goal of the session is to highlight the common ground, discuss the major challenges faced in specific fields, and identify solutions to further the cross-disciplinary development of mesh-free methods in the geosciences.
