expansion factor in Ansa
hi, i'm trying to simulate a oil splash in a gearbox due to the gear rotating. my the solve process could not continue, and i checked the output file. i noticed that the mesh statistic point out that the grid's expansion factor in some domain is "!", which means unacceptable.
in order to avoild this problem. when i generating the volume, i used the "tetra FEM". but the expansion problem is still there when i calculating.
i find out that there is no such quality criteria to check the expansion problem, and i do not know why there is an expansion problem.
would anyone have experience please help me? thank you!
Which ANSA version are you using?
Here are some suggestions
-Use MESHV>TETRA RAPID instead of TetraFEM it is much faster
-You should check for example Solid Fluent Skewness for 0.9 (an area with very abrupt expansion should also be bad in skewness too
-You can also check for Solid Growth Rate say 5
In any case the problem usually comes from bad quality shell mesh
Before MESHV check that you shell mesh has Fluent Skew<0.7 for example
Hope this helps
