Skew (FEM mode)

Skew occurs when the angular distortion of a quadrilateral shell element approaches 0. When you check your mesh, Creo Simulate uses the Skew quality measures to highlight elements having angles between included edges that exceed the maximum skew angle.

Creo Simulate defines skew, S, as the difference between a right angle and the angle at the intersection of the mid-lines.
