Evaluating 2D Element Qualities – Jacobian
Presented By: Skyler Teel
What is in this webinar?
This webinar will discuss how to evaluate 2D element qualities, specifically:
- It will describe the element Jacobian mathematically, at a high level
- It will explaing how the Jacobian is implemented in the FEM process.
- It will confirm that a poor Jacobian will result in a poor element transformation, and thus poor results, as compared with the exact solution for a cantilevered beam with a tip force.
- It will show how to avoid the creation of poor elements with mapped mesh as well as the mesh locate tool.
