Abaqus: Bottom-up mesh example
So swept meshing and structured meshing have failed or aren't available but bottom-up meshing is complicated and hard right? Not as much as you might think. Here is a sample of how I meshed a region of a part using bottom-up meshing technique. This is using Abaqus version 6.7 and I'm skipping the parts about seeding, partitioning, and element type that you have to do to make a mesh. Be sure you seed the region before you mesh it or it will not mesh. Step 1: Select Mesh > Controls... > Hex (in this case it could be something else but hex looks the most professional) > Bottom-up. Then you select the region (partition, cell) of the part you wish to mesh with bottom-up technique.

and deflect according to the applied load ie.run job analysis and view results Now what I find is that the two meshes behave as normal.I am investigating crack propagation in brittle solids using abaqus for my undergraduate thesis.4) that uses an orphan mesh as the main part of the model. Reply Comments ABOUT ME Iowa is now my tenth US state to live in after California. I would then create another partition around the circumference that passes through the the center of the hole. I have read through much of the abaqus manual. Perhaps one part with a partition in the middle and an edge biased mesh on both sides so that near the middle the mesh is very dense but near the http://www. which in Abaqus is "An eight node linear brick" and they look like little cubes. so now I have 4 parts (2x 10x10 parts and 2x 10x10 orphan meshes) 3.Learning to DO: Abaqus: Bottom-up mesh example 4/3/2556 Hi. Part-1 is 10x10 size and has a 1x1 mesh using CPS8 elements.com/2009/04/abaqus-bottom-up-mesh-example. except that at the boundary where the nodes are merged.. What I need is for those elements along the boundary to also merge. I would suggest creating one part instead of two and using partitions to divide the part in half or quarters or some other number of regions. and then joining them. These are the experiences I have.4 in the Abaqus Example Problems Manual (abaqus doc v6. I am currently employed by a leading manufacturer of construction and forestry equipment to do finite element analysis...7). I think that perhaps creating a partition along the length of the cylinder that goes through the center of the hole as well as a partition that is perpendicular to that along the length of the cylinder. that will be joined along a common boundary. I want to merge these two parts into one part retaining the mesh orientations described above. Kansas. I also do not see the sketch that you attached. in Materials Science and Engineering from Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI).. I am now trying to create an orphan mesh similar as the one in the manual.. I get the message that "the connecting side has to be bound with at least 4 edges". I need to have the mesh mapped in the hole in order to find the critical plane. For my model. This can obvoiusly never be the case for a pipe. merging the nodes that are overlapping 4. Missouri. I enjoy mountain climbing including ascents of the Diamond on Longs Peak and reaching 7000 meters (and spending the night) on Broad Peak. I feel as though I am on the right path. You might also be able to use an edge biased mesh as well. I am creating two square parts of 10x10 units.
