I am a newbie analyst looking to gather the opinion of this great forum. When using solid elements I have been mainly sticking with hex elements, but with some added complexities to my current project’s design I have been leaning towards using tets with midside nodes. What is everyone’s take on hex vs tets? Are there some general issues to watch out for when using tets?
Thank you in advance!
