This window lets you Define the zoning for your 2D Part.

**Box****Cells**The number of cells (elements) you want to use in the I and J directions. The corresponding number of nodes and elements required for your part will be displayed below.

**Grade zoning**Check the boxes if you want to grade your zoning in any direction.

If you choose this option you can specify a range of cells that have a fixed size. The remaining cells will be smoothly graded to fit the overall dimension of the box you specified in the previous window.

**Fixed size**The dimension you want to use for the fixed size cells.

**Times**The number of fixed size cells you want to use.

**Position**Specify where you want to place the fixed size cells relative to the full I/J range.

Centered - at the center of the full I/J range

Lower - at the lower end of the I/J range

Upper - at the upper end of the I/J range

**Circle****Mesh Type**Select a Type 1 or Type 2 mesh for your circle.

The type 1 mesh is more efficient in using elements, but some elements are not very rectangular (which can reduce the accuracy of your solution).

All the elements of a type 2 mesh are reasonably rectangular, but about a quarter of the elements generated for this mesh are unused.

**Cells across radius**The number of cells (elements) you want to use across the radius of your circle.

**Number of elements**Displayed below the input fields is the index space that will be used for your Part and the number of nodes and elements required.

**Ogive****Mesh Type**Select a Type 1 or Type 2 mesh for your ogive.

The type 1 mesh is more efficient in using elements, but some elements are not very rectangular (which can reduce the accuracy of your solution).

All the elements of a type 2 mesh are reasonably rectangular, but some of the elements generated for this mesh are unused.

**Cells across radius**The number of cells (elements) you want to use across the radius of your ogive.

**Number of elements**Displayed below the input fields is the index space that will be used for your Part and the number of nodes and elements required.

**Wedge****Cells across radius**The number of cells (elements) you want to use across the radius of your wedge.

**Number of elements**Displayed below the first input field is the index space that will be used for your Part and the number of nodes and elements required.

**Grade zoning**Check this box if you want to grade your zoning.

If you choose this option you can specify a range of cells which have a fixed size. The remaining cells will be smoothly graded to fit the overall dimension of the box you specified in the previous window.

**Increment**The dimension you want to use for the fixed size cells.

**Times**The number of fixed size cells you want to use.

**Rhombus****Cells across quarter**The number of cells (elements) you want to generate across a quarter of the rhombus.

**Number of elements**Displayed below the input field is the index space that will be used for your Part and the number of nodes and elements required.

**Quad****Cells in I/J direction**The number of cells (elements) you want to use in the I and J directions. The corresponding number of nodes and elements required for your part will be displayed below.

**Automatic**Select this option if you want the internal nodes to be spaced equipotentially.

**IJ-Straight**Select this option if you want the nodes along each I and J line to be equally spaced along a straight line.

**Geometric Ratios**Input geometric ratios in the fields provided if you want to grade the zoning instead of generating equally spaced nodes.
