Source nodes and target nodes

      Do the source nodes have to be on the target nodes? I am getting an error message regarding interpolated values. Don't know what that means.

      Is there a way i can make sure that they overlap?

      Hi

       

      Can you please explain more what you refer to and also attach any images if you can to add to the description and to make it easier for forum members to understand.

       

      All the best

      Hi

      unfortunately i can't add pictures but i'll try to explain it better. I add residual stresses to my component (source nodes) but a few of those points don't overlap/are not in the same position with a target node from the mesh. Is that a problem? If yes, how can i ensure they overlap?  

      Thank you for your help

      Hi

      You can just copy and paste an image using say a snipping tool like I do below. We will assume you talk about WB/Mech. here and external data to transfer stresses to a FE model - I assume that the software will map the stresses if the source and the mesh you want to map onto are not identical.
