AdaptiveMethodType Property (ICWStaticStudyOptions)

Gets or sets the type of adaptive meshing to use to achieve more accurate results.

.NET Syntax

Visual Basic (Declaration) 
Property AdaptiveMethodType As System.Integer
Visual Basic (Usage) 
Dim instance As ICWStaticStudyOptions
Dim value As System.Integer
instance.AdaptiveMethodType = value
value = instance.AdaptiveMethodType
System.int AdaptiveMethodType {get; set;}
property System.int AdaptiveMethodType {
   System.int get();
   void set ( &   System.int value);

Property Value

  • 0 = None
  • 1 = h-adaptive; iteratively adjusts the size of the mesh cell in areas of the model where a smaller mesh is needed
  • 2 = p-adaptive; iteratively adjusts the polynomial order of the mesh to improve accuracy


See the ICWStaticStudyOptions examples.


If you set this property to 2, you must set ICWMesh::Quality to swsMeshQuality_e.swsMeshQualityHigh.
