In this paper, we present a new point of view for efficiently managing general parallel mesh representations. Taking as a starting point the Algorithm Oriented Method Database (AOMD) of [12] we extend the concepts to a parallel mesh representation. The important aspects of parallel adaptivity and dynamic load balancing are discussed. We finally show how AOMD can be effectively interfaced with mesh adaptive partial differential equation solvers. Results of the calculation of an elasticity problem and of a transient fluid dynamics problem involving thousands of mesh refinements, and load balancings are finally presented.
