Bias Type and Bias Option
For edges only, use Bias Type to adjust the spacing ratio of nodes on an edge. This feature is useful for any engineering problem where nodes need to be clustered on an edge or group of edges, or if there is a need to bias the mapped mesh of a face towards a specific direction with respect to the edges of the face. Bias Type can be used with all meshers except the Patch Independent Tetrahedron method and the assembly meshing algorithms. To use Bias Type, choose one of the four pre-determined patterned options depicted pictorially from the Bias Type drop-down menu:
Note: The MultiZone meshing method respects all Bias Type options. The nodes generally follow the distribution. However, some optimization can be done to improve transition with other mesh, or to improve the quality. Setting the Behavior to Hard will give higher priority to the bias settings defined than the optimization.
In this tutorial, you will learn how the BIAS FACTOR tool works in Ansys Meshing. You can download the Excel file from the following link.
You can make animations based on keyframes. Keyframes define the start and endpoints of each section of animation.
In this tutorial, you will learn how to use the Match Control tool in Ansys Meshing. Match Control allows duplicating the mesh in a body. We have two option Match Control Cyclic and Arbitrary.
By default, Use Adaptive Sizing is set to Yes, unless Physics Preference is set to CFD or Nonlinear Mechanical (in which case the default is Capture Curvature set to Yes),
Refinement controls specify the maximum number of times you want an initial mesh to be refined.
By default, the application uses the Automatic Method control, which attempts to use sweeping for solid models and quadrilateral element generation for surface body models.
Available when Use Adaptive Sizing is set to Yes, the Resolution option controls the mesh distribution. The default setting is Program Controlled.
For solid models, meshing technologies from ANSYS provide robust, well-shaped quadratic tetrahedral meshing on even the most complicated geometries.
You can set the Use Automatic Inflation control so that inflation boundaries are selected automatically depending on whether or not they are members of Named Selections groups.
