FEMAP V11.3: Interactive Mesh Refine

FEMAP V11.3: Interactive Mesh Refine

FEMAP V11.3: Interactive Mesh Refine

This new command of FEMAP V11.3 allows you to dynamically “highlight” 2-D shell elements to refine using one of two patterns:

• 1 to 4: each original quad element split into four QUAD elements.
• 1 to 9: each original quad element split into nine QUAD elements.

Any elements surrounding the “refined elements” will be automatically split using appropriate “transition patterns” to maintain connectivity between the “newly refined mesh” and the “origi­nal mesh”. As the elements are “highlighted”, a preview of the “refined mesh” and “transition mesh” will be “painted” on the original elements. Once you are satisfied with the mesh refinement, click OK to update the origi­nal mesh.

In addition, there is an option to split shell elements in two halves or into thirds by using specified vector to “split along”.

Finally, any line elements sharing nodes with a refined or modified shell element will also be split appropriately.

Best regards,
