Shock tracking, as an alternative method to shock capturing, aims to generate a mesh such that element faces align with shock surfaces and other non-smooth features to perfectly represent them with the inter-element jumps in the solution basis. These methods have been shown to enable high- order approximation of high-speed flows and do not require extensive refinement in non-smooth regions because, once the non-smooth features are tracked by the mesh, the solution basis approximates the remaining smooth features. In previous work, we introduced an implicit shock tracking framework that re-casts the geometrically complex problem of generating a mesh that conforms to all discontinuity surfaces as a PDE-constrained optimization problem. In this talk, we present a number of extensions to the implicit shock tracking method aimed at improving robustness for complex problems.
