Transforming meshes (p-refinement)


After mesh generation of the body with simple finite elements either triangular (T3) or quadrilateral (Q4) GFAS allows to transform the generated elements to higher-order finite elements (T6 or Q8). This feature is particularly desirable, since convergence of the results can be easily checked with a p-refined finite element mesh generated in this way. If this scheme is applied to the whole finite element mesh, its structure remains consistent (Fig.13). The quality of the mesh is also preserved.
