Generate Mesh

After the boundaries are Discretized, select the Mesh Mesh icon option from the toolbar or the Mesh menu, and the finite element mesh will be generated with no further intervention by the user.

The mesh will be generated according to the Mesh Type and Element Type in the Mesh Setup dialog. The total number of elements and number of nodes in the mesh will be displayed in the Status Bar.


  • The Mesh option is also available as a button in the Mesh Setup dialog. This allows you to experiment with different mesh and discretization parameters, and view the results, while using the Mesh Setup dialog.
  • A shortcut to discretize the boundaries and generate the mesh with a single mouse click, is to select the Discretize and Mesh option.
  • The Remove Mesh option can be used at any time to remove the mesh and / or discretization.

NOTE: as of Phase2 version 5.0, regions within excavation boundaries are now always meshed, even for single stage models. Previously, for a single stage model, the region within an excavation boundary was NOT meshed. This change was made to improve the consistency and flow of the Phase2 modeling procedure. Users will now have to excavate regions within excavation boundaries, even for single stage models, with the Assign option.
