hey there, 

i have this 2d plate with the mesh marked in blue.

i need to split each element vertically and horizontly, as in the elements with the gray lines. is there a way to do this automatically? Capturar.PNGbecause i need to do 4 refinements of this mesh so manually is very time consuming!

thanks in advance!!

Use the Split Shell command. Subdivision options include:

 

  • Quad to 2 Triangles subdivides the selected quadrilateral element into two triangular elements.

  • Quad to 2 Quads subdivides the selected quadrilateral element into two quadrilateral elements.

  • Quad to 4 Quads subdivides the selected quadrilateral element into four quadrilateral elements.

  • Quad to 3 Quads subdivides the selected quadrilateral element into three quadrilateral elements.

  • Quad to 3 Triangles subdivides the selected quadrilateral element into three triangular elements.

  • Triangle to 4 Triangles subdivides the selected triangular element into four triangular elements.

  • Triangle to 2 Triangles subdivides the selected triangular element into two triangular elements.

 

See "Splitting Shell Elements" in the online help:
