An anisotropic mesh adaptation strategy for finite element solution of elliptic differential equations is considered. The adaptation method generates anisotropic adaptive meshes as quasi-uniform ones in some metric space. The as- sociated metric tensor is computed by means of a posteriori hierarchical error es- timates. A global hierarchical error estimate is employed in this study to obtain reliable directional information of the solution. Mesh examples are presented for the mathematical model for heat conduction in a thermal battery with large orthotropic jumps in the material coefficients4.
