Meshing Controls: Advanced Size Functions

ANSYS Meshing provides two types of size functions to provide appropriate mesh sizing for different physics. The default size function for structural mechanics applications is designed to accurately capture the geometry while minimizing the number of elements in the model. The advanced size function is the default for fluids applications and is designed to accurately capture the geometry while maintaining a smooth growth rate between the regions of curvature and/or proximity.
