Hi friends,


I have a query regarding mesh element.


In solidworks Simulation we are using tetrahedral mesh elements; these can be varied by changing the aspect ratio.I have heard use of Hexagonal mesh elements in some other meshing softwares, i wanted to know it's charachterstics.


Does anyone have any info regarding where these hexagonal mesh elements are used, what advantage or disadvantage it has over tetraheral elements?

Does solidworks has any option for hexagonal element?
