Using the Check Element Quality tool I see that there are 2 kinds of warping: Warping and Nastran Warping, which have different maximum allowable values. When checking the mesh quality, which one do I have to choose?
I would say Nastran Warping since then I have to run the analysis using Nastran, but then I do not understand what the other one means.
Also, using the Nasran Warping no element fails the check, whereas using the other one I get quite a few failures.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Your Element Quality Check command is "TOOLS > CHECK > NX NASTRAN", this is a new resource found in FEMAP V11.2 (March 2015), this is the best element checking if your Finite Element solver is NX NASTRAN.
There are 22 separate checks on the NX Nastran tab, which are the same quality checks used by the NX Nastran solver (WARP = Warping, IAMIN = Minimum Internal Angle in degrees, IAMAX = Maximum Internal Angle in degrees, AR = Aspect Ratio, EPLR = Edge Point Length Ratio, DETJ = Jacobian):
Run this command, let ALL CHECKS ON(not matter if your model is 1-D, 2-D or 3-D) and FEMAP will tell you if elements fails or pass the NX NASTRAN QUALITY Check, OK?.
