Helpful Hints and Tips: Case Study on the Influence of Element Mapping and p-Discretization
In this case study, a 3D tie rod under bearing loads was analyzed (CAD courtesy of Digital Engineering). The influences of 1) converting element mapping from isoparametric/quadratic to geometric and/or 2) assigning p-discretization on the peak stress and solver time was documented. Element mapping was considered both on all elements and a subset in the region of interest, and p-discretization was considered on elements outside the region of interest to reduce solver time.

“Of the three FEA products we use, StressCheck® gives me the most confidence when it comes to performing post-processing quality checks on multi-body contact analysis results. StressCheck® has the capability to extract any data of interest and convergence information for that data at any location in the model domain; the other two FEA products do not. And when it comes to interference fit multi-body contact solutions, I haven’t found any software to outperform StressCheck®.”
