Benefits and Description
After you select geometry in areas where singularities may occur, stresses and possible displacements for the elements that touch the geometrical references defined by using the IEAC are ignored. The Preselect Singularities option automatically detects areas for exclusion, such as near point loads and point constraints.
By ignoring singularities in a model during analysis, you save analysis time and get accurate results for the areas outside the singularities.
