Simulation Submodeling Simulation Professional 2013 introduces a new submodeling study capability. This functionality allows users to refine the results at local regions without needing to run the entire model. The submodel study can have a highly refined mesh and additional geometric details that may be unrealistic having in the full study. For those who are interested on the background theory of submodeling, you can read up on St. Venant’s principle. Submodeling studies are derived from a master study; define this […]
