Considering the TVD methods as accuracy-adaption methods, we propose a strategy for deciding mesh refinements for TVD-approximated compressible flows. Both mesh enrichment and deformation are applied to two typical test cases involving boundary layers: a flow past a flat plate and a flow around an airfoil.
