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.

Oklahoma. Massachusetts. These are the endeavors I pursue. 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. I have read through much of the abaqus manual.com/2009/04/abaqus-bottom-up-mesh-example. You might also be able to use an edge biased mesh as well. 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. Then you can seed the edges of each region and develop a dense mesh in one region and a coarse mesh in another region.4) that uses an orphan mesh as the main part of the model. Part-1 is 10x10 size and has a 1x1 mesh using CPS8 elements.. I need an internal region of very fine mesh. 2009 at 10:42 AM I have not worked with orphan meshes so I can not comment on what you may or may not be doing wrong.4. I am currently employed by a leading manufacturer of construction and forestry equipment to do finite element analysis. I am getting stuck however when I try to create adjacent regions of differing mesh densities. For my model. Isaiah August 14. but failed at that business that time.4 in the Abaqus Example Problems Manual (abaqus doc v6. which in Abaqus is "An eight node linear brick" and they look like little cubes. I have attached a sketch of my model as described above. I hope some of that helps and it is not too late. and an outer region of very coarse mesh.create each part in the Part module assign the seeds and generate the mesh 2. I am unfamiliar with meshing in a hole but when I have had to mesh around a hole in the past I was able to partition the surrounding material into four pieces and I used hex elements. Can you help me? //Veronica Waatz. merging the nodes that are overlapping 4..once the mesh is generated I create a mesh part (also called an orphan mesh I believe) of each part.7).S. At that point you should now have eight sections to your cylinder and I would think you can mesh everything separately with a bottom-up mesh.I am investigating crack propagation in brittle solids using abaqus for my undergraduate thesis. Reply Comments ABOUT ME Iowa is now my tenth US state to live in after California. I read your post on bottom-up meshing in ABAQUS and I have a question. This can obvoiusly never be the case for a pipe. The way I am trying to create this is by creating two parts and seeding them separately..

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. The model that I have been looking at as a guide is example 1.. in Aerospace Engineering and an M. Kansas. I need to have the mesh mapped in the hole in order to find the critical plane. I want to merge these two parts into one part retaining the mesh orientations described above.4. What I need is for those elements along the boundary to also merge.
