Mesh Transition In ANSYS Meshing(Illustrated Expression)

General mesh options in ANSYS Meshing are very important for starting to obtain required mesh structure for physical model to be used in finite element analysis(FEA). One of these option is called ‘Transition’ value in ANSYS Meshing. Also other options are explained in Mechanical Base. In this article, we will explain what is ‘Transition’ option and how it is changed in ANSYS Meshing.

What Is ‘Transition’ In ANSYS Meshing?

Select a ‘Transition’ option in ANSYS Meshing.

To adjust ‘Transition’ in ANSYS Meshing, click on ‘Mesh’ tab in ANSYS Meshing as shown by red arrow above then select a ‘Transition’ option as shown in red box as Fast or Slow.

Transition value define the growth rate between adjacent mesh elements in mesh structure. This option dissappear for sheet models. If a model contains sheets and solids in same time, the ‘Transition’ option appears, but selected option will not valid for sheet in the assembly.

Fast: The growth of mesh elements will be very fast which means abrupt growths can be observed.

Slow: The growth of adjacent mesh elements much more slow that you will not observer abrupt growths between adjacent elements.

The general logic of ‘Trabsition’ value in ANSYS Meshing is very basic like that. Select the proper option according to your geometry.
