Unformatted text preview: niform refinement while PLANE42 converges at a slower rate. The percent error in energy norm results indicate that global accuracy is best obtained by PLANE82 for any given DOF set. However, the σy stress at target point 1 shows that for uniform refinement, PLANE42 gives better results (at that point) under moderate mesh refinement. A fine mesh using PLANE42 in place of a coarse mesh of PLANE2 or PLANE82 may produce better localized stress values. ANSYS Verification Manual .
