1 PAT301, Workshop 8, October 2003 WS8-1 WORKSHOP 8 VARIOUS METHODS OF SOLID MESHING

2 WS8-2 PAT301, Workshop 8, October 2003

3 WS8-3 PAT301, Workshop 8, October 2003 n Problem Description u Import a parasolid solid. Use the geometry to create the geometry for use with either the IsoMesh or TetMesh. Create the geometry for use with the IsoMesh by breaking the original solid into a set of six faced blue parametric solids. The actions used to do this are 1) create breaking planes, 2) break the solid several times, 3) refit some of the white solids to be blue solids, and 4) mirror. Create geometry for use with the TetMesh by breaking the original solid two times. This is done only to create solid faces for use in creating pressure loading. The original solid could be TetMeshed as is. Four sets of solids are created. The various sets are meshed with hex8, hex20, tet4 or tet10 topologies. The four models are completed and analyzed using MSC.Nastran. Finally, the results for the models are viewed in MSC.Patran. A brief comparison is made of the results.

4 WS8-4 PAT301, Workshop 8, October 2003 n Suggested Exercise Steps 1. Create a new database called lug.db. 2. Import a parasolid solid using the file lug.xmt. 3. Rename the default group, create a new group, and place a copy of the original solid in the new group. Groups will be used to separate the four models. This will make it easier to work with them. 4. Post(show) only the group for the hex8 element mesh. 5. Create three points to be used for creating a plane for breaking the solid. 6. Create two breaking planes. 7. Break the hex8 solid twice. 8. Create five points, these will be used in creating more breaking planes. 9. Create two more breaking planes. 10. Break the solid twice 11. Create a point and plane. 12. Break the solid. 13. Practice using Plot/Erase, and refit the solids to make all solids blue parametric solids. 14. Delete the unwanted solid(from first break; at top of model). 15. Mirror the five blue solids so that they appear where the deleted solid was.

5 WS8-5 PAT301, Workshop 8, October 2003 n Suggested Exercise Steps (Cont.) 16. Create a group for the hex20 mesh model, copy the hex8 geometry into it and post the group with the tet4 geometry. 17. Edit the tet4 geometry by breaking the solid twice. 18. Create a group for the tet10 mesh, copy the tet4 geometry into it, and post all the groups. 19. Create a cylindrical coordinate system at the center of the hole for the hex8 model. 20. Post just the hex8 group, IsoMesh with hex8 topology, then repeat for the hex20 group, using hex20 topology. 21. Post just the tet4 group, TetMesh with tet4 topology, then repeat for the tet10 group, using tet10 topology. 22. Post all four groups. Display the element free edges, equivalence, then display the free edges again. 23. Create pressure loads and constraints for all four models. First, create three more cylindrical coordinate systems for the other three models by translating the original coordinate frame for the hex8 model. Use the coordinate systems to create four fields. Each field corresponds to a unique model. The fields use the function sinr(T). Having created four fields, create four pressure loadings using a scalar factor of , so the loading for each model is 1000*sinr(T). Each model is constrained on its back faces.

6 WS8-6 PAT301, Workshop 8, October 2003 n Suggested Exercise Steps (Cont.) 24. Create material and element properties. 25. Check the default load case to see that all the pressure and constraints have been applied. 26. Perform the analysis of the four models using MSC.Nastran. 27. Post process the results. First, attach the XDB file. Display the deformed shape with and without the undeformed models and geometry. Add the von Mises stress fringe to the display. Create three more viewports. Post each group to the corresponding viewport. Display the deformed shape and stress fringe for each group in each viewport.

Note the similarity between results for the hex meshes and the tet10 mesh. The tet4 mesh model is very inaccurate. The TetMesh is a very convenient approach because it is not necessary to break up the solid into many parts, unlike the IsoMesh technique. Step 27. Read and Display Analysis Results (Cont.)
