Hello!,

The FEMAP command "Mesh > Editing > Interactive" lets you split a single linear or parabolic QUAD finite element into smaller quads or triangles. But also the mesh quality is excellent, pass all NX NASTRAN checks with success, see below:

 

Check Element Quality
665 Element(s) Selected...
No Elements Outside of Maximum Allowable Value.

   Quality Check               Number Failed      Worst Value
      Quad Skew                          0            63.4349
      Quad Taper                         0            0.33333
      Quad Warp                          0                 0.
      Quad IAMin                         0                45.

I encourage to FEMAP developers to include this command in the modern MESHING TOOLBOX, it is a really powerful tool to perform 2-D mesh transitions in a fast & reliable form, thanks!.
