The two figures illustrate an exemplary geometry meshed by a regular grid of (hexahedral) elements before (Figure 1
(a) ) and after the automatic application of periodic boundary conditions (Figure 1
(a) Periodic (hexahedral) mesh opened in MSC.Mentat.
(b) Same mesh after automatic application of periodic boundary conditions through servo links (black lines).
