A new local adaptive grid-generating algorithm is developed and integrated with the multi-grid control volume method to simulate the steady state flying condition of air bearing sliders in HDDs (Hard Disk Drives) accurately and efficiently. Two sliders are used to demonstrate the applicability of this method. The results show that this new local adaptive grid-generating method improves substantially the stability and efficiency of the simulation scheme.
