Meshing Logs

Within SimScale, there are meshing logs that show test results regarding mesh quality. Some of these metrics include:

  • tetEdgeRatio
  • quadMaxAngle
  • triMaxAngle
  • triMinAngle
  • volumeRatio
  • tetAspectRatio.

The most important metric for simulation is would be tetAspectRatio. We recommend to keep the mesh metrics below 100. Depending on the simulation type, the importance of the mesh quality may vary.

Example: tetAspectRatio over 1000 will work on a heat transfer simulation, but will most likely fail in a CFD simulation.
