Why do we use mesh controls in SOLIDWORKS?
Mesh control refers to specifying different element sizes at different regions in the model. A smaller element size in a region improves the accuracy of results in that region. You can specify mesh control at vertices, points, edges, faces, and components.
How does mesh work in SOLIDWORKS?
Meshing is a very crucial step in design analysis. The automatic mesher in the software generates a mesh based on a global element size, tolerance, and local mesh control specifications. Mesh control lets you specify different sizes of elements for components, faces, edges, and vertices.
How do you show mesh in SOLIDWORKS?
To view a mesh sectioning plot superimposed on a result plot, right-click an active result plot and click Mesh Sectioning. In the Mesh Section PropertyManager, select a reference plane or cylinder for the orientation of the mesh section plane. You can dynamically position the mesh section plane in the graphics area.
What is a coarse mesh?
A coarse mesh may provide an accurate solution if the solution is a constant, so the precision depends on the particular problem instance. One can selectively refine the mesh in areas where the solution gradients are high, thus increasing fidelity there.
Can mesh be too fine FEA?
Both over-refining and under-refining your mesh can lead to incorrect results when a user does not understand the finer points of meshing. By understanding the basic principles of FEA, these issues can both be understood and avoided. Getting incorrect results from using too fine of a mesh seems counter-intuitive.
What is blended curvature based mesh?
The Blended Curvature-based mesher has improved performance based on optimized code architecture, multithreading, and parallel multicore processing. The improved mesher can mesh parts and large assemblies significantly faster. It can also mesh models that previously failed to mesh.
How do I fix a failed mesh in Ansys?
For the error, please use right click on the error and click on ‘problematic geometry’. This will highlight geometry which is failing to mesh. You will need to modify geometry at this location or change mesh sizing. If your meshing has special controls like periodicity, please check if those are correctly defined.
How do I read solidworks simulation results?
Displaying SOLIDWORKS Simulation Results in the Graphics Area
- Open an assembly that has a simulation study saved with it.
- Click the Static 1 tab.
- In the Simulation Study tree, right click Static 1 and click Run.
- Click the Model tab.
- Click Simulation Display (View toolbar) or View > Display > Simulation Display .
How do I turn off section clippings in Solidworks?
- Click Reset to reset the values in the PropertyManager to the initial state.
- Click Clipping on/off to turn the clipping of the current plot on or off.
