Every FEA Analyst has his own story to tell with the mesh topology
This is when I learnt about mesh topology…
Checking the mesh topology for example will allow you to detect:
– Non-manifold edges
– Feature edges
– Free face edges
– Clamped elements
– Overlapping elements
Here is an Interactive Tutorial
Rather than explaining that in this email, I decided to show you on some simple example how to check the mesh topology of your model.
This demonstration is interactive so I hope it will help you to understand how to use those functions in your own model.
