Element size?

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

Does anyone know if there is a tool in Hypermesh which says the average element size of a 2D mesh?

 

I could use the measure tool and get the distance between two nodes of an element, but I am interested in get the average of all elements.

 

Thanks in advance,

 

Alex

Hello,

 

You can do this using TCL.

 

First open the command Window

Go to View>>Command Window

 

Then type the following code:

*createmark elems 1 displayed

hm_getaverageelemsize 1

 

 

This will give you the average element size.

 Hey Sanjay,

 

Can you tell me what this value refers to, in case of triangular elements? 

And do you know how to calculate the average element size of 3D tetra elements?

 

Thank you!
