What is the recommended mesh density for RAYON BEM and FMM BEM?

What is the recommended mesh density for RAYON BEM and FMM BEM?
For standard BEM one can start with 6-8 elements, and refine from there. For collocation (used by the FMM solver) the guideline should be 6 to 10 elements. read more

Difference between using an external vs. internal FE solver in VA One

Difference between using an external vs. internal FE solver in VA One
In brief, what’s the difference between using an external vs. internal FE solver in VA One? The background is that VA One is using structural modes for FE and for FE/SEA hybrid. These modes can come from two sources: - Internal VA One Solver - External solver (... read more
