I am working on the Hopkinson bar for my project but unfortunately I have a big problem about the mesh.
When I mesh the bar with the function "elem offset", the mesh come distorted (see fig).
Can anyone tell me how to keep the mesh straight?
Any help is welcome
I attached a picture to clarify the problem
Thanks in advance
Try following the instructions in this post which utilizes the 3D meshing tab. Use the circular end to mesh a 2D quad mesh and refine it how you like, then use that as the source for the 3D mesher which will pull that patter along the geometry.
