Smooths selected nodes among selected elements.

Compatible Products: – | Pro | Premium | Enterprise | Ent PP | Ent Solver | DYNA


Number of smoothing passes. Defaults to 3.


Repositions each selected node at the average position of its immediate neighbors on the selected elements. The node positions converge after some number of smoothing passes. For some initial conditions, NPASS may need to be much larger than 3. If the boundary of a mesh is to be undisturbed (usually desirable), the boundary nodes should be unselected before issuing NSMOOTH.
