Abstract

In this paper, the effects on the finite element analysis results of mesh size and mesh compatibility would be discussed based on a shear wall which has non-aligned holes. The computed results based on the compatible mesh and non-compatible mesh would be presented and compared. Similarly, the FE models with different mesh size would be analyzed and the calculated results would be compared. Through these comparison the following conclusions, which are identical with the FE theory [1-3], could be obtained that: (1) the structural stiffness of non-compatible mesh model would be less than that of compatible mesh model; (2) the structural total stiffness would decrease sequentially with the decreasing of mesh size.
