P-Elements by mloew
Posted: 24 Oct 03 (Edited 25 May 04)

There has historically been confusion about the "P-elements" in Pro/MECHANICA. Here is a list of resources that I hope will help in understanding this feature.

Please consider the commentary provided in this forum and specifically, the following threads from the Finite Element Analysis engineering Forum (Forum727):
  • p- elements (Thread727-23503)
  • Pros/Cons of Pro/MECHANICA (Thread727-24111)

  • Information from PTC: Adaptivity methods in Pro/Mechanica Structure by Ken Short PhD.

    TSD Engineering has good explanations and images on p vs. h convergence.

    Articles by Scott A. Prost-Domasky, P.E., D.Sc:
  • p-version vs. h-version - Part I (www.engineersclub.net/techpubs/ENGCLUB7.doc)
  • p-version vs. h-version - Part II (www.engineersclub.net/techpubs/ENGCLUB8.doc)

  • Elite Consulting Ltd. Presents: Pro/MECHANICA - How It Works

    University of Alberta ANSYS Tutorials: Using P-Elements
