We present a quantified description of the fluid flow and a novel flowline-based meshing technique to create adaptive grids for Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) simulations in patient-specific intracranial aneurysms. The adaptive grid density is obtained such that it captures the fine geometrical details of the flow with high grid density, while smoother flow characteristics are calculated with a coarser grid density. The correlation between the topological characteristics of the flow and the element size of the adaptive grid results in a practical mathematical formula for calculating the element size using only one uniform base mesh and a user defined implementation in CFD post processors.
