Several a posteriori indicators in the framework of local grid adaptation and large eddy simulation (LES) are evaluated. In LES indicators must be capable to bound not only the discretisation error, but also the modeling error. Moreover, the numerical method must be able to adapt the computational grid dynamically, as the regions requiring different resolution are not static. The performance of different indicators is evaluated in two flow configurations. It turns out that the classic residual based error indicator and the newly introduced heuristic indicator perform best.
