Generating Circular Slab with Curved Element


A new template for generating second-order curved elements, Figure B-3, is now available for circular slab. As shown in Figure B-4, the new mesh refinement provides a better distribution of the results a round the center of the circle, which reduces the local error in the elements around the center.
