I try to explain my problem.
On APDL I have a volumetric mesh consisting of 9 parts and all these parts have elements of the 'mesh200' type. I want to convert 'mesh200' to 'Solid187'. To do this conversion i used these commands:
Preprocessor --> Element Type --> ADD Element --> Solid 10 node 187
In the APDL window the commands have been executed and has not reported me errors, but the mesh has not changed. So I would like to know if there is a way to understand if the conversion has taken place.
Thanks to those who will answer!April 29, 2022 at 4:24 pmRahul KumbharAnsys EmployeeThe script should be something as below
et, 100, 187 ! define element type 187
esel, s, ename, , 200! select elements of Mesh200
emodif, all, type, 100! reclassify elements 200 as 187
esel, s, ename, 187! select elements of name 187
emid, add, all! add mid side nodes to selected elements
