StressCheck Demo: Comparing Manual Mesh and Automesh Results for a 3D Stepped Specimen
Abstract: the exact solution of a mathematical model should be independent of how the finite element mesh was generated (i.e. manually or automatically), the number of elements used to construct the mesh, and/or the polynomial orders of the element displacement functions. In this demonstration, we show how a 3D stepped specimen peak stress result converges to practically the same magnitude and location for two different meshing strategies.
