[GiDlist] Output of Volume

Postby Amancherla, Sundar (GE, Research) » Mon Jan 23, 2006 12:55 pm

Hi

I have divided a cube ([-0.5,0.5] on all the sides) in to many volumes. I am able to write a batch file for reading the geometry. Is there a function in GiD to output the volumes as dimensionless units as a function of the total cube volume?

Thanks very much for your help in advance.

Best Regards,

[GiDlist] FW: Mesh error? Id of some distorted elements

Postby Ernesto Santana » Mon Jan 23, 2006 5:52 pm

Hi
I have been working in the model of a structural joint. I have meshed
using the GID mesher. I found that some distorted elements on the
surfaces of some of the tubes. I have attached the model to this email.
Could you please let me know what can I do to sort out this problem? Is
this an error in the GID mesher code?
The ID of some of the distorted elements are 3422 and 3425.

Thank you,
Best regards,
Ernesto

[GiDlist] FW: Mesh error? Id of some distorted elements

Hi, I'm Abel Coll,

The problem you have is that the you are meshing the model (the cylindrical parts) using a too big meshing size. Due to this, some quadratic nodes can't be mapped correctly into the surface, so as these distorted elements appear.
Try to reduce the mesh size of this surfaces.
I don't know the meshing preferences you are using, but it will be good (in your case) to use "Smoothing- HighGeom". This kind of smoothing tends to place the mesh nodes minimizing the distance between edges and geometry (surface).

I hope this information could be usefull to you.

Regards,

ABEL
