Dear guys,

I am doing a thermal simulation. In order to be sure that the results are independent of the mesh size, I am performing an analysis using the tool "convergence" and an adaptative mesh refinement.

I would like to use the generated mesh to perform a transient study. Is it possible to export the generated mesh and use it also in the transient study?

Cheers,

Alessio

Thank you for your answer. So my question now is the following:

- How can I use a mesh that has converged in the static analysis to the transient analysis?

 

cheers,
Alessio

Note the size of the elements in the converged solution, then remove the adaptive mesh refinement and apply mesh controls to achieve a similar element size in the high gradient areas.

Thank you very much peter.

Could you advise me on some books or references to study more in-depth these things?

Cheers,

Alessio
