How to define the exact location when having got a note that distorted FE elements have been found? These areas cannot be detected at first glance.

Answer

If distorted elements are so small that they cannot be detected (see Figure 01), it is recommended to display the 'Mesh Quality Annotations'. You can find this option in the Display navigator → FE Mesh → FE Mesh Quality. There, you can activate the annotations for the "Warning" and "Failure" elements (see Figure 02). Thus, using the values, you can immediately recognize where the location is. For larger models, it may be helpful to hide the model during the search.
