Element types for meshing

    • trippleD

      Hey guys,

      i want to get deeper in the topic of mesh generation. I' looking a lot in the ANSYS Help Documentation, but i didn't what i'm looking for. I'm talking about the element type for meshing:

      For 2D, you can mesh the geometry with tirangles and squares. For 3D, you can mesh the geometry, for example with tetrahedra,prisms, hexahedrons,...

      Which advantages and disadvantages do i have for each element type? Which element do i choose for which problem?

      An overview would be great. Thanks a lot.
