Result example

Enable Local Mesh Constraints

Governs meshing by attributes on the geometry (bodies, faces, and edges) that control the meshing process locally. For further discussion, see “Mesh Constraints”. If this value is false, all mesh constraints will be ignored during meshing.

Propagation Factor

Controls element size transition rate from coarse to fine areas. Valid values are between 0.0 and 1000.0 with smaller values resulting in faster transitions. Typical values are between 0.0 and 10.0. As the value decreases the transition in size will happen in fewer elements until at a value = 0.0 the elements will immediately jump to the finer element size with no transition.

Generate VIF Files After Meshing

If true, the Voyager Input File translator is run during each solver iteration. Necessary if inputs that affect the translator have changed. Visible only for 2D/3D Electrostatic Particle (MICHELLE) simulations.
