Transparent face after meshing multizone

      When you scope a result to a face only contours on one side are shown by default. To me it looks like the mesh has been created properly, just the display of those elements have been turned off somehow. Could you check the deformation result for the whole body and see if it looks normal.

      Dear Thank you for your opinion. Appreciate it. Attached is the total deformation result for the whole body, everything okay except for the corroded region still being transparent. I tried to look around at the element display, nothing happened.

      If there were any missing elements solver should have thrown a error, which is not the case. Could you use the node(CNTRL+N)/element selection(CNTRL+K) tool and click on the mesh at a few random points over the corroded area? If there are elements/nodes there they should be highlighted in green. This way we can make sure that the problem is with the visualization.
      Regards IShan.

      Could you change Mesh defeaturing to 'Yes' and add a tolerance value which is greater than the depth of the small step in the corroded area. Then remesh the model and see if you still find elements missing.
      Regards Ishan.
