Standard Mechanical Shape Checking In ANSYS® Mechanical(Illustrated Expression)


It is very important to know the whole meshing options in ANSYS® Mechanical to decide the proper meshing options according to your physical system. Because, for different physical systems such as fluids, electromagnetics, classical mechanics, the mesh structure must be changed or adjusted according to these physical situations. ANSYS® provides various kinds of meshing options to its users to adjust the meshing according to the physics of the FEA. The shape checking option is also an option to adjust the mesh structure according to the problem in ANSYS®. In this article we will show you;

  • What is the Standard Mechanical option in Shape Checking options in ANSYS® meshing,
  • Where to use Standard Mechanical option in Shape Checking options,
  • How to adjust Shape Checking to Standard Mechanical option,

Standard Mechanical Option In Shape Checking Options In ANSYS® Meshing

Standard Mechanical option in Shape Checking option in ANSYS Mechanical.

The standard Mechanical option in the Shape Checking criterion is the default option for ANSYS® meshing as shown by the red arrow and red box above. Basically, Jacobian Ratio is computed in integrations points in the Standard Mechanical option. It is recommended to use linear, thermal, modal and stress problems in ANSYS® Mechanical.

Select the ‘Mechanical’ option for Physics Preference.

Also, it is recommended to select ‘Physics Preference’ as ‘Mechanical’ as shown by the red arrow above. Also, it is the default option for ANSYS® Meshing.
