Element Geometry Parameters

Recommended Posts

Is there a way to change the geometry parameters (maximum and minimum interior angles allowed) used to construct a mesh? If not, then it would be great if the user could define more stringent parameters when they think it's necessary.

Thanks,

Chris

Chris,

The mesh generation algorithms currently implemented in SMS do not use min/max interior angles in the mesh genration process. If you are having problems with poor quality elements, you may want to try relaxing the mesh and smoothing the size data set.

I have submitted a request to investigate new mesh generation algorithms for future versions of SMS that would allow specification of geometry parameters.
