  • how to decide weither mesh density is suffcient for Transient analysis ?

    In order to decide adequate mesh size for the transient analysis, we compare the current mode (mesh )shape with the previous Mode (mesh) shape. I compare it visually.   Is there any tool that can compa...

  • Why is the aspect ratio statistics not available for Planar 2D Mesh?

    Hello,   I try to check mesh quality of a 2D simplification in my static study and realized that compared to a Solid Mesh for Planar 2D Mesh the aspect ratio statistic is missing.   Is this a SW bug, missi...

  • Does Simulation have a setting for simulating set screws, or do I need to use the Tool box or separate resultant force/torque representation? Thx!

    Is there a manner to simulate a bolted contact for a set screw? Maybe I'm overlooking an easy setting, but it appears the bolted contacts all assume that the bolt has a head and goes through a clearance hole in one pa...
