Relevance value is a very important value to obtain finer meshes. You can adjust according to your physical or engineering system. Also, your computational system will be a restrictive factor in mesh quality and fineness. In this article, we will show you how to change the relevance value of mesh structure in ANSYS® Mechanical.
Click on the ‘Mesh’ tab as shown in the red box above then change the Relevance value of mesh structure as shown by the red arrow. You can change with the scroll-bar or you can enter a value between -100 and 100.
After adjusting the relevance center of the mesh structure, right-click on the ‘Mesh’ tab then click on the ‘Update’ button from the appeared menu as shown by the red arrow above.
We adjusted the mesh relevance value as -91, and you can see the mesh structure is obtained very coarse way in ANSYS® Mechanical.
We adjusted the Relevance value as 76 and the obtained mesh structure is much finer compared to the previous one in ANSYS® Mechanical.
So it is very easy to adjust the Relevance value in ANSYS® Mechanical.
