In the present work, numerical simulations of unsteady flows with moving shocks are presented. An unsteady mesh adaptation method, based on error equidistribution criteria, is adopted to capture the most important flow features. The modifications to the topology of the grid are locally interpreted in terms of continuous deformation of the finite volumes built around the nodes. The arbitrary Lagrangian-Eulerian formulation of the Euler equations is then applied to compute the flow variable over the new grid without resorting to any explicit interpolation step. The numerical results show an increase in the accuracy of the solution, together with a strong reduction of the computational costs, with respect to computations with a uniform grid using a larger number of nodes.
