What does the "Calculate grid points result values for graphics" option set?


The calculation of the results in grid points is important for displaying values on surfaces, among other things. You can find the information about grid points here.

The problem is that in the case of complex structures and many load combinations, the calculation in grid points is relatively time-consuming and therefore, it requires a large amount of memory. Even if you perform the calculation in FE nodes as shown in Figure 01, it is always necessary to additionally perform the calculation in grid points. Otherwise, the results cannot be displayed in grid points under Values on Surfaces.

For complex structures, it is recommended to deactivate this option to perform a faster calculation.
