• Vertical Exaggeration

    I have a case (2D) where the model is very long (around 4000m) and the height is around 30m only. As a result I applied a vertical exaggeration 1:20 to be able to see the model in a resonable way. I created the super mesh (snap to the nodes at the border lines of my model). The mesh was created with triangles of approximately equal sides in the vertically exaggerated model which means that the actual proportions for the mesh triangles are not really acceptable to FEM.
    1- What are the effects of having the long triangles on the simulation results?
    2- How to create sutable mesh in such a case?
