Unformatted text preview: the elements to 4node elements and compare the results. Note: To change the elements, just delete the previous mesh and remake the mesh using 4node elements by setting “ Nodes per element ” to 4 (default value is 9 as used in the example). Compare the calculated stresses with the two meshes along the two symmetry lines and discuss your results with a few sentences.
