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.
Quad IAMax 0 135.
0 Elements Failed out of 665 Checked.
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!.
