Controls the creation of HEXA elements for the ACM realization.


*ce_fe_proj_hexa_face (state)


hm.cfg Commands


This option applies to the connector ACM realization in order to control the creation of HEXA elements that are tied to the surrounding shells using RBE3s. Turning the option on will result in the following:
  • ACM HEXA faces are created such that the face edges are orthogonal (this is especially necessary when the surrounding shell mesh has TRIA elements or QUADS that are non-rectangle in shape).
  • The nodes that define the ACM HEXA face are projected to surrounding shells for shell gap option (useful in cases where the connecting shell mesh defines curved parts).
