Abstract [en]

The adaptive variational multiscale method is an extension of the variational multiscale method where the line-scale part of the solution is approximated by a sum of numerically computed solutions to localized subgrid problems. Furthermore, the crucial discretization parameters are chosen automatically by an adaptive algorithm based on a posteriori error estimates. This method has been developed for diffusion-dominated problems and applied to multiscale problems that arise in oil reservoir Simulation. In this paper, we extend the method to convection-diffusion problems. We present it duality based a posteriori error representation formula and an adaptive algorithm that tunes the fine-scale mesh size and the patch sizes of the local problems. Numerical results show rapid convergence of the adaptive algorithm. Copyright (c) 2008 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.
