The Best FEA Mesh Transition | MSC Nastran

Mesh transition can be a complicated subject. It may simply be used to refine the mesh in a particular area, connect different element types (for example, a CBAR element to a solid element), or provide transitions required to model the geometry of the structure. Two guidelines for mesh transitions are as follows: Never place a ...

Choosing the Right Finite Element | MSC Nastran

MSC Nastran contains a large library of structural elements. In many situations several elements are capable of modeling the same structural effects. The criteria for the selection of an element may include its capabilities (for example, whether it supports anisotropic material properties), its cost (in general, the more DOF an element has, the more expensive ...
