Display Options

In the RS2 Model program, the following options are available in the Display Options Display Options icon dialog.

Stress Tab

Mesh

Node Numbers

This option will display the node numbers of the finite element mesh, as used in the RS2 data files. When Node Numbers are displayed, they will overlap in dense regions of the mesh. This is normal, use the Zoom Window option to zoom in and make numbers readable. The display of Node Numbers can be useful if you are performing a detailed inspection or troubleshooting of the mesh.

Note: you may notice that the node numbering begins at 4. This is correct and is due to the automatic meshing process, which requires 4 nodes located "outside" of the external boundary. These 4 "invisible" nodes are numbered 0, 1, 2, 3.

Element Numbers

Element Numbers will display the number of each finite element, as used in the RS2 input and output data files. When Element Numbers are displayed, they will overlap in dense regions of the mesh. This is normal, use the Zoom Window option to zoom in and make numbers readable. The display of Element Numbers can be useful if you are performing a detailed inspection or troubleshooting of the mesh.

Midside Nodes

Discretizations with mesh

Shrink Elements

The Shrink Elements option will "shrink" each finite element such that common sides between elements are drawn twice and offset from each other. This allows the user to check the integrity of the mesh if a problem is suspected. Or it can be used as an alternate way of displaying the mesh.
