how to sweep surface meshing

    • Md_Salem

      I am trying to model a plate equipped with tiny patches, the surface is modeled using shell elements while the tiny patches are modeled via solid elements , all patches are bonded to the plate. The plate is quite large (up to 30 m in width and 400 m in length) with element size of 1.5 m while the patches are very small (15 cm *15 cm per each) and the element size is 5 cm.

      How to perform sweep meshing to the plate such that its elements nodes meet the nodes of patches elements

      For sweep meshing you will need to provide source and target face.
      Please check following videos

      You may also want to see decomposition.

      If you are concerned about connection, it means you will need to do share topology.
