Using a combination of Smooth Particle hydrodynamics and Adaptive Mesh Refinement simulations of galaxy mergers, with sub-parsecs scale resolution, we have study both the mass transport process onto the massive black holes throughout a galactic merger and especially, the posible black holes coalescence at galactic center. The final coalescence of these black holes lead to gravitational radiation emission that would be detectable up to high redshift by future gravitational wave experiment such as eLISA, which is expected to be launched in 2034.
