Yes, It does converge toward 0-flow when I refine the mesh !
In the code, coordinates are set by
ierr =
DMDASetUniformCoordinates(da_prop,0.0+0.5*dx,1.0-0.5*dx,0.0+0.5*dy,1.0-0.5*dy,0.,0);CHKERRQ(ierr);
Does it set coordinate for elements center here?
When I want to try non-uniform grid, should I just modify coordinates
attached with the DM, or I need more implementation?
Many thanks.
