The major part of a star’s lifetime, from birth to death, is punctuated by strongshocks. Such discontinuities can be efficiently treated using Adaptive Mesh Refinement.Moreover, by using theoretical properties of shocks, it is possible to begin themesh refining before a gradient appears. We present here our new project of implementationof shock prediction within AMR techniques with the aim of using Gridtechnology as part of the CosmoGrid. This Irish project consists of a network of themajor research computing facilities in Ireland. Such a Grid will allow us to use AMRtechniques applied to astrophysical shocks in a new type of computing architecture.
