I've been asked to demonstrate that the a comparison of, averaged nodal or elemental stresses with their corresponding averaged values shows a less than 5% variance, as part of a report linear FEA stress study. This is to cover the mesh sensitivity study requirement of API 17TR8. I can't see a way of doing this in Solidworks Simulation does anyone know how it can be done? Or can suggest an alternative approach that I could document to show I've covered the sensitivity issue?
I've tried using the h-adaptive meshing approach but I'm being told that doesn't fulfill the requirement.
