Displaying FE Mesh Quality
Tips & Tricks
As a new tool for structural analyses of two-dimensional components, a display function for the FE mesh quality was implemented in RFEM. When you perform an internal check of the generated finite elements for defined criteria, you can graphically display the result. It will be displayed in three different colors to illustrate the different levels of quality. You can edit all values of the criteria and thus adjust them to your individual needs.
This feature improves the evaluation of the FE mesh, for example to find areas with required FE mesh refinements. However, it should not replace the check of the FE mesh by an engineer.
