As it can be appreciated, the meshes generated using MinElem mesher are rather special. It is common to use them for visualization purposes, or to simulate rigid body kinematics in some kind of simulations. Using GiD, the user can assign different meshers to different entities:

  • . Set the Default values in the Meshing branch of the Preferences window (note that the RFast surface mesher is set).
  • . Assign the MinElem mesher to the surface number 24 by setting Mesh->Unstructured->Mesher->MinElem and selecting surface number 24. The resulting mesh is shown in Figure 18.
