Benefits and Description
The default values for the AutoGEM limits produce p-meshes for accurate results for nearly all real-world models. On very simple models, AutoGEM may be overly aggressive in minimizing the number of elements in a mesh. On rare occasions, a low mesh density in a region may lead to stress results of limited accuracy.
With the new curvature-based mesh control, you can add additional elements only where the geometry of the model has curvature. These additional elements are automatically sized by the local curvature.
