Introduction – Midsurface Geometry and Meshing for FEA with MSC Apex

In Finite Element Analysis, structures can be represented with a variety of elements including 0D, 1D, 2D and 3D elements. Thin walled structures are commonly represented with 2D or planar elements. Different dimension elements can be used to represent the same geometry. An I-Beam (W Shape) can be idealized as 1D, 2D, or 3D elements. …
