Effect of Mesh Size of Finite Element Analysis in Modal Analysis for Periodic Symmetric Struts Support
Meshing for finite element analysis accuracy plays a very important part in numerical simulation of Periodic Symmetric Struts Support (PSSS). Different accuracy can be obtained by different element sizes or types. Three element types and eight element sizes are used for comparing the accuracy of modal analysis in this paper. Comparing with the mutual relations of different accuracy, the scientific basis is provided for selecting the correct mesh size and improves the efficiency of numerical calculation in modal analysis.
