How change the Element Type and Order in Hypermesh

Recommended Posts

Hello ,

I want to change 2. Order Elemets to 1.Order Elements in Hyper Mesh, I did it and export this new Model.
when I open this model(1. Order Elements) in Hypermesh, the Elements are not shown.

I tried to change the Element Type from SOLID187 to SOLID72 but, even at this time the Elements are not displayed.and the Elemet Types are still SOLID187.

my perpose is that I have to Run the new model(with 1.Order Elements) in Ansys, but with this Problem, ansys don't Run.

could you please tell me how can I solve this Problem?

Thanks Sanjay,

I did this , but the Problem is that, when I change the Order and export it, and want to open it again, these Elements don't shown.

for solving this Problem I change the Element Type.(SOLID187 to SOLID72)and change the Order, and export the Model, but again when I open it, These Elements are still SOLID178 and dont shown.

 

I think we have to find a specific way to change the Element Type, that saved in Model.with regular wayis not Possible.

 

thanks for your helping

before changing the order the element type is TETRA10 , SOLID185 (Picture1),
I change the Picture1.thumb.JPG.e7de384a90086a8691457d6277773f94.JPG2. Order to 1.Order and the Element Type is Tetra4, SOLID45 (Picture2)

I export the model in .cdb file and open it again, the Model look like the above Picture, (Picture3) and the Element Type is still SOLID185.

Hello,

 

In HyperMesh go to "3D" page and there go to "order change" panel. This panel lets you change the order of your elements.

Please try this

 

Thankyou

 

 

In Ansys Solver go to Utility Browser and then to "ET Type"

There create a new ET Type

Assign the ET Type with Element type you want to change it to.

 

Then go in the model browser and select that ET Type in the "Type" field for the respective component.

Hey, after changing your elements to 1st order (3D => order change ), you HAVE to :

  • Define a new "Sensor" for 1st order type element. I take SOLID45 as example

  • Define a new "Property" for SOLID45 type:

  • Update your 1st order component:

Here're my tests models:   ansys-1st_order.hm       ansys-2nd_order.hm
