Surf 154 element

Surf 154 element

(OP)
Hello,

I am doing a mid surface analysis using shell181 element. I want to use surf 154 element also but i dont know how to use it or how to apply it to my model. Pls help
Is there any way to select the element type of our choice??

Thanks

RE: Surf 154 element

At least in Workbench if you have a model (either shell or solid) and
surface load (force, pressure, ...) applied, SURF154 elements are used
automatically. You can check from solve.out which elements are used.

I did some analysis before using plane183 and surf153, the idea is same. Hope it helps.
