I am working on a simulation of a pipe with shrinkage and I am really having a problem to get good results. I’ve tried several mesh configurations and I’ve changed the numerical settings but none of these tries worked. The pipe has the following dimensions:
Diameter 1: 40 mm; Diameter 2: 20mm; Length of the 1st section: 1000 mm; Length of the 2nd section: 500 mm. Total length: 1500 mm.
This is the link of my last simulation try:
Someone would have a solution or a tip to help me solving this problem? Do you think the sharp corners/edges would be an issue?
I thank you for your attention!
All the best!
