Meshing curved parts with surface matching


Hello All,


I am comparatively new to FEMAP. The task in hand is to mesh curved parts (as seen in the file below). The meshed parts will be imported in LS-Prepost for adding other cards. I am not able to mesh the three parts with a matched mesh on common surfaces. Have tried most of the solutions I could find on various forums. The best I could do was to slice the top edge and delete it to have a top face. With this I was able to generate matching mesh in just two parts. The core part still gives error-"top and bottom face not matching".

Some guidance here would help. The FEMAP file is attached.

In cases where you have surfaces of revolution that intersect their pole or axis of revolution, you may need to remove and reset surface mesh approaches.

In this case, I removed the match mesh approach on the matching surfaces, and applied a mapped three-corner approach to the same surfaces as shown below and meshed the three parts seperately as I applied the option for Multiple Tet through Thickness for the second part, then merged the nodes.






A Femap Neutral file is attached of the meshed parts.
