Abstract : This research was an effort to explore further the promise of the moving finite element method for the solution of difficult large-gradient PDE problems in 2-D. The results of this research indicate that: (i) the MFE method does extend logically and practically to 2-D, and (ii) extensive continuing research is needed in several task areas in order to advance further applications of the MFE method, per se, and to also pursue further advances which are essential to all adaptive PDE solution methods.
