This paper gives the first step in a systematic program of application of knowledge-based system methods for optimization of the computation process for adaptive fluid dynamics computations. The results presented are a systematic exploration of the parameter space for optimization of the mesh for solution of an explicit time-marching finite volume 1D Euler code. The substantive benefit possible from intelligent adaptation is determined. The results are put in the context of a more ambitious project.
