Ignore for Excluded Elements

Select one of the following options for the quantities that Creo Simulate can ignore in excluded elements during calculations:

• Stresses—Ignores stresses of excluded elements in measure calculations if selected. Creo Simulate also ignores strain energy in those elements during convergence checking.

• Stresses and Displacements—Ignores stresses and displacements of excluded elements in measure calculations if selected. Creo Simulate also ignores strain energy in those elements and displacement at excluded element edges during convergence checking.
