This paper presents the development of a parallel adaptive mesh control procedure designed to operate with high-order nite element analysis packages to enable large scale automated simulations on massively parallel computers. The curved mesh adaptation procedure uses curved entity mesh modification operations. Applications of the curved mesh adaptation procedure have been developed to support the parallel automated adaptive accelerator simulations at SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory.
