How to Sweep Mesh Ventilated Brake Disk with Split Faces

    • Gaige Bryan

      My goal is to have multiple elements along the thickness of the disk to properly simulate bending stress. I've split the face so I can apply a Pressure boundary condition only where the brake pad sweeps the rotor face (highlighted in green). However, this seems to make the body unsweepable and I'm curious if there's a workaround or perhaps a method similar to Sweep that will allow me to have 3 or 4 elements along the disc thickness.

      You will need to decompose it further. Please check following video on hex meshing.
