I am trying to design a circular plate with an excentric circular void. I can only work with SOFIMSHA in Teddy.
My starting point was to generate the nodes on the plate end, i.e. the outter node ring.
Then I generated the nodes of the circular void countour, i.e. the inner node ring.
To finish, I intended to automatically generate the mesh with the functions UMSH and UBND, as seen below:
GRUP 11 BEZ ‘Deckel’
QUAD PROP MNR 1 MBW 10 T 0.25 LAGE OBEN
UBND OUT SEL KNOT N1 (1000+#NER1 1001 -1) $ outter node ring (Plate end)
UBND IN SEL KNOT N1 (2000+#NER2 2001 -1) $ inner node ring (Void contour)
By applying this function for two circular geometries nothing happens. No mesh is generated at all.
However, if I replace the inner circular void by a rectangular void, the functions works perfectly.
I would like to ask for any king of help and thoughts on how to mesh a circular plate with a non eccentric circular void.
Thanks in advance.
