7.2.3 FE Mesh Refinements
FE Mesh Refinements
The generation of the FE mesh can be influenced by FE mesh refinements to refine the mesh on relevant points such as in connection zones. Refinements are also used to achieve a good compromise between result accuracy and computing time.
Basically, there are four types of FE mesh refinements:
- Refinement around a node
- Refinement on a line
- Refinement on a surface
- Refinement on a solid
The definition of FE mesh refinements is described in Chapter 4.23.
