What I noticed is that the plastic arm that suspends the […]

Divergence and Convergence for Simulation Results

EmailFacebookLinkedInTwitterShare

Divergence in a model  leads to a stress quantity that continually increases as the user refines the mesh globally or in areas of localized high stress.  Divergence is typically encountered when the load transfer concentrates in the geometry at a sharp corner. The stress will continue to rise based on its own definition; Stress=Force/Area With a sharp corner the area becomes, zero.  This drives the stress value upwards with each new, tighter mesh. In manufacturing a perfect edge does not […]
