hi all,


i made a 1.34 mm plate and meshed it with element size of 1 mm, 0.5mm and 0.4 mm (see figure below).  As the element size reduces, the total number of elements in the model increases.  but, I don't get see an increase in the number of element through thickness.  It starts as 5 element through thickness (element size = 1mm), but it remains at 6 elements through thickness for 0.5 and 0.4 mm mesh.  i would like to know how can i increase it from 6 to say 8 or 10.
