Hi. I am analyzing cylindrical pressure vessel with fillet at the inner bottom corner. (Pls see attached picture) During the analysis using Optistruct, it stopped and the error message said that "Element # 2575, element type PENTA" the element was at the tip of the fillet. I know removing the fillet is the one of the best way to gain the quality of elements, but I want to analyze the exact model with fillet. Please tell me how to solve this problem. In above picture, brown is solid element and blue is shell element extracted from the face of the solid element in order to add a inner pressure. I am using HyperWorks ver.13. Thank you.
I have a component meshed with different elements (Hexa, Penta and tetra). The problem I am facing is while defining the element formulation of the component. How one can define element formulation in such case? The problem is the same for the case of 2D plates when we encounter quad and tri elements in a component. I also searched the answer for this in the book "Practical aspects of FEA" but couldn't find it. Please guide me through the problem.
