With this tool you can customize and refine your mesh knowing the length of the first element.

You can download the Excel file here: Bias Factor

You can download the last Excel file here: Bias Factor

If you input are edge length, number of divisions and length of first element you can use this Excel file: Bias Factor Custom

The equations for calculating the length of the first element of the mesh using Bias Factor are:

## Part 1

## Part 2

For calculating the second length you must multiply the growth rate and the first length, for the third length you must multiply the second length and the growth rate again and so on.

This is a nice work, its good if you provide ANSYS WORKBENCH structural analysis .

Hi my friend;

Thanks, well, soon tutorials about Ansys Mechanical.

Regards

Keep up the great work guyz.

Thanks friend. Regards

Hi friend, Thanks for your input, well the file “Bias Factor Custom” are right, Growth rate must be greater than 1 (general ruler), this file was made for a subscriber considering this general ruler. Regards

Can you tell me where in the ANSYS helpbook you found the equation for the length of the first element, I would like to reference it for a paper.

Hi friend, I think that is not referenced in ANSYS HELP, I found the equation testing several options.

Could you tell me where in the ANSYS helpbook you found the equation for the length of the first element (Edge Length)? I would like to reference it for a paper.
