Mesh Refinement for Stress Singularities

The Stress Hot Spot Diagnostics functionality is improved with the addition of Stress Singularity detection algorithm.

When the Stress Hot Spot diagnostics tool detects regions of the model that exhibit the highest stress gradients, you can apply local mesh controls to selected geometric edges, like sharp edges, in the hot spot regions. The improved algorithm with the addition of mesh refinement filters stress singularities from the stress hot spot regions.

The enhanced stress hot spot diagnostics tool allows you to:
  • Select edges to apply mesh controls and change the mesh size.
  • Refine the mesh locally up to three levels.
  • View stress variations across different mesh levels on the selected edges to confirm the presence of stress singularities in your model.
