Array nThose are solid elements. You only have one element through the thickness. I can't tell if it has midside nodes or not. You can set the Mesh Details to use Midside Nodes, which means Quadratic elements. If you do that you need a minimum of two elements through the thickness, but it is better to have more. nRead this discussion. You might want to consider a midsurface model.n nThose are solid elements. You only have one element through the thickness. I can't tell if it has midside nodes or not.
