This paper describes a parallel procedure for anisotropic mesh adaptation with boundary layers for use in scalable CFD simulations. The parallel mesh adaptation algorithm operates with local mesh modification operations developed for both unstructured and boundary layer parts of the mesh. The adaptive approach maintains layered elements near the viscous walls and accounts for the mesh modification operations that are carried out in parallel on a distributed mesh. In the process mesh
