How to estimate mesh convergence just by looking at stress contour plot
September 10, 2020
Ignoring the mesh convergence´can lead the design process in wrong direction. Although error indicators can be requested to evaluate the mesh convergence, the unaveraged stress contour plot could be used as an alternative in cases where error indicator is not available due to software capability or simply because an analyst forgets to request error output variable.
