Question from Anand: Is it possible to check the failure location while creating mesh?
Answer: The high stresses are a result of the mesh. When running once with a mesh density, you would change the mesh density (like Lino is doing now) in the are of high stress.
Question from Brian: Is there a way to check the quality of the mesh?
Answer: Mesh size and aspect ratio is defined by the user. The mesh will be created within those bounds.
Question from Brian: Can linearized stress be calculated in post-processing?
Answer: Not at this time.
Question from Rajesh: Can we change mesh size as desired?
Answer: Yes, the mesh can be modified locally and/or globally.
Question from Tim: Can you use a temperature-dependent materials and thermal loads in the structural solver?
Answer: The material properties are constant and do not change with temperature. Creo Advanced Simulation can use Thermal loads in the Structural solver (MechT). Not Creo Ansys just yet.
