Mesh refinement

    • Kampanat Cheng

      Good morning,

      I have a problem that when i refine the mesh at the critical area of my design the max stress is multiplying so I am not sure that which one is correct With Refinement or Without refinement both average element quality is almost the same. I am not sure if it is stress singularity because i have already fillet the corner. 

      Hopefully somebody can help. Thank in advance

      max stress with refinement

      The max stress when i suppress the refinement.

      Refinement on the surface can be set to 1, 2 or 3.

      Reply with the peak stress for no refinement, refinement 1, 2 and 3.

      Look at the difference between each successive value of peak stress.

      Are the differences getting smaller with each higher level of refinement or are they getting larger?
