How Element Quality is Calculated

The quality of elements in a mesh can be gauged in many ways, and the methods used often depend not only on the element type, but also on the individual solver used.

When possible, the most common or standard methods are used, but there is no truly standardized set of element quality checks. When a solver does not support a specific check within HyperWorks CFD, HyperWorks CFD uses its own method to perform the check.
