How and when to use the Nonlinear adaptive region?

      I was simulating a strip footing using plane strain idealization with bilinear Isotropic Hardening material. Here are the simulation results.

      nThis model is so small and easy to mesh, there is no need to use the Nonlinear Adaptive Region capability.nJust use a small element size for the domain. If you want smaller elements locally around the footing, place a coordinate system at the center of the footing and use a Body Sizing mesh control with Type: Sphere of Influence. Select the coordinate system and type in a Radius and Element Size.n
