Relative Mesh Size

If the Mesh size type is set to Relative, the Relative mesh size has to be specified.

The actual mesh size will be computed by multiplying the Relative mesh size with the largest edge length of the bounding box for each geometric face in the surface group. Note that this means a different mesh size may be used for each face in the surface group.


This example will use the same box as used in the Absolute surface mesh example. Here the mesh on surface "One" is prescribed by a relative mesh size. The relative mesh size of 0.125 is used. Since the largest length in the model is one meter, this is multiplied by 0.125 to generate a surface mesh where the largest element is 0.125 (1*0.125= 0.125). The resulting mesh is shown below.
