The mesh constraint region is used to override the default mesh element area in some part of the simulation region. Normally the meshing parameters are set in the Solver settings. However, if some specific meshing conditions are required in part of the simulation region, a mesh constraint region can be specified.
|Note: Only one simulation region per simulation is supported, but multiple mesh constraint regions may be used.
Note: Objects which lie outside the simulation region.
Any simulation objects contained or partly contained within the simulation region are included in the simulation, while any objects which fall completely outside of the simulation region are not included in the simulation. Those physical structures (and portions thereof) lying within the simulation region are included in the simulation (i.e. the simulation is performed on that portion of the physical structure lying within the simulation region). Physical monitors and sources are treated in a similar fashion, such that any portion of a monitor or source lying within a simulation region will be used. The user is warned when at least one source or monitor falls completely outside the simulation region.
- MAXIMUM EDGE LENGTH: The maximum length of an edge of a triangle (in 2D) or tetrahedron (in 3D) used in the mesh.
- X, Y, Z: The center position of the simulation region
- X MIN, X MAX: X min, X max position
- Y MIN, Y MAX: Y min, Y max position
- Z MIN, Z MAX: Z min, Z max position
- X SPAN, Y SPAN, Z SPAN: X, Y, Z span of the simulation region
- USE RELATIVE COORDINATES: If this is enabled then the mesh constraint will use the center or the solver as its origin (reference). If disabled then it will use the absolute center (0,0,0) as its origin.
This option allows the user to parametrize the mesh constraint position and span based on an existing volume.
- SOLID: Select the target solid. The solid can be a geometry object or a structure group.
- DOMAIN: Select the target domain. The reference geometry is the volume of the selected domain.
- ALL DOMAIN: The reference geometry is the volume of all domains.
