Refine the Mesh

Now that we have our results, it is important that we check to see that our computational simulation is accurate. One way to check our results is by refining the mesh further. The smaller the elements in the mesh, the more accurate our simulation will be, but the simulation will take longer. To refine the mesh, look to the outline tree and click Mesh > Body Sizing Change the element sizing to 0.1 (half the size of the mesh we originally tried).
