Solid mechanics and element settings
Posted Feb 9, 2013, 7:47 AM EST Mesh, Structural Mechanics & Thermal Stresses Version 4.2 2 Replies
I am analysing stresses and displacements of simple 2D steel plate with Comsol 4.2. I need to get results calculated by triangle linear plane stress elements for comparison.
How can I change element type to linear? Comsol seems to use quadratic elements by default?
