Simulation tips for Flip Shell Elements


Have you ever worked on a complicated Simulation study with many thin components meshed with shell elements?  If you have, you’re familiar with the face colors for shell elements – silver for the top face, orange for the bottom face.  The face colors provide a visual link from the 2-Dimensional representation of our part back into 3-D space.  At some time, you may have encountered ‘top’ and ‘bottom’ faces in the mesh being adjacent to one another, or a mis-alignment […]
