Nobody knows where to find weight?
I have another question. When performing drop test, using h-adaptive method isn't available, I wonder how to secure stress convergence? The help file states "Good transition in the mesh helps convergence. Fast mesh transition can lead to divergence. The solver checks for this condition by monitoring the energy balance. It gives a message and stops when the energy balance indicates divergence."
So by using energy balance, the mesh automatically checks for convergence? How coarse could I then make my mesh to start with??
Hi Flemming, if you set your material in SW, you can find the weight with the Mass Properties option. As far as mesh convergence in Drop Test, it is a manual process currently. The technique I've used in the past is to run a few static studies to get a feel for likely "hot spots" and base my drop test mesh control on these. Most likely, you'll catch more than you need but with many drop simulations, it can be hard to guess the exact area(s) of interest off the bat.
