    Do convergence tests work when using curvature-based meshing?

    Jeremy Notestine

      I'm trying to graph a convergence plot on a few high stress spots of my model but even with a large mesh size, it appears to be converged. There isn't much difference between a large and very fine mesh size. I'm thinking this is because I have curvature based meshing checked and therefore there are more nodes in that area. Does that seem right?

      Is there a different way convergence tests are conducted when curvature based meshing is used?

       

      Thanks,
