Self-Adaptive Mesh Wizard

The Self-Adaptive Mesh Wizard is a tool that helps the user for generating finite element mesh with better element/ node distributions. The wizard is used to regenerate the finite element mesh for slab floor and raft problems. The new mesh will be generated based on the strain energy distribution. The self-adaptive technique used in this wizard reduces general system error besides enhances stress distributions. Adaptive mesh is generated either by using Delaunay generation or by using Grid-based generation (Figure 1).

- Self-Adaptive Mesh Wizard 1.0 is included in ELPLA 9.2 (MUI)
