This paper presents a postprocessing technique for estimating the local regularity of numerical solutions in high-resolution finite element schemes. A derivative of degree p ≥ 0 is considered to be smooth if a discontinuous linear reconstruction does not create new maxima or minima. The intended use of this criterion is the identification of smooth cells in the context of p-adaptation or selective flux limiting. As a model problem, we consider a 2D convection equation discretized with bilinear finite elements. The discrete maximum principle is enforced using a linearized flux-corrected transport algorithm. The deactivation of the flux limiter in regions of high regularity makes it possible to avoid the peak clipping effect at smooth extrema without generating spurious undershoots or overshoots elsewhere.
