Smoothing is a very important parameter in ANSYS® Meshing. It generally changes mesh quality inside the mesh structure. Smoothing of mesh is working as, moving the elements and nodes according to neighboring nodes and elements to improve the mesh quality. In this article of Mechanical Base, we will show you how to change the smoothing value of a mesh structure.
Click on the Mesh tab as shown by the red box above then select a Smoothing value such as; Low, Medium, or High in ANSYS® Mechanical.
At first, looking, there will no visual difference after changing the Smoothing value in ANSYS® but there will be a difference in Element Quality of mesh structure going from Low, Medium, and High.
So it is very basic to adjust the Smoothing value of the ANSYS® Mesh structure as above.
