    determining largest element size that will succesfully complete the meshing

    Arkmando Arratia

      Hi Guys,

      I am working on a simulation of a large thin part (not possible to run it as shell). I only need an approximate of where the higher stresses are located (not the stress magnitude). I am currently using the new SW 2015 sp.0. version. Since I am not particularly interested in the stress magnitude, I am thinking on using the most coarse mesh possible. My problem is that when selecting the element size I am not sure what the largest element size can be, so it can achieve a succesful mesh (I usually get failed mesh, until my 3 or 4th iteration). Is there a feature in SW 15 sp.0 which can help me decide what is the largest element size that will succesfully complete the meshing?

       

      Regards,
