Effects of Mesh Density on Finite Element Analysis 2013-01-1375

In finite element analysis, mesh density is a critical issue which closely relates to the accuracy of the finite element models while directly determines their complexity level. This paper presents a systematic study on finding the effects of mesh density on the accuracy of numerical analysis results, based on which brief guidelines of choosing the best mesh strategy in finite element modeling are provided. Static, modal, and impact analysis are involved in this study to discuss the effects of element size in finite element analysis.
