The two graphs below show the comparisons of all the different mesh sizes for linear and parabolic hexahedral
finite elements are used for the solid domain (b).
3] and discontinuous coefficients and hexahedral
elements are considered.
In preparation for FE analysis, the Modeler performs mesh generation, using tetrahedral, prismatic or hexahedral
elements, or a user-defined mix of two or more element types.
The meshing was composed primarily of tetrahedral mesh elements including hexahedral
, pyramidal and wedge with various sizes.
grid is used for both domains; points are equally spaced in streamwise and spanwise/azimuthal directions for both channel and pipe, while a nonuniform discretization was used for the wall normal direction in order to obtain a finer grid next to the wall.
8 such models were created and discretized with hexahedral
mesh elements with an average element size of 0.
The model was discretized using hexahedral
elements for the joists and tetrahedral elements for the slab and screws.
The simplified model was meshed with global 1 x 1 x 1 mm C3D8R elements (8-node hexahedral
linear brick reduced integration elements with hourglass control) as shown in Figure 2(a).
