This report summarises the work conducted under the eCSE (embedded Computational Science & Engineering) project ‘Integrating mesh movement (r-adaptive) technology within Fluidity and the PRAgMaTIc parallel anisotropic (h) adaptive mesh toolkit’. The overall objective was to integrate new mesh movement (or r-adaptive) methods within two existing PDE solver frameworks (Fluidity & Firedrake) which, to differing degrees, already possess h-adaptive capabilities. 

This work was funded under the embedded CSE programme of the ARCHER UK National Supercom- puting Service ( The authors would also like to thank the complementary support provided by the EPSRC projects EP/L000407/1 and EP/M011054/1, and industrial research funding from the Weir Group.
