M. Circular Plate with Hole

Circular Plate with hole is a special case of Polygonal Plate with Hole, where the Boundary is circular, keeping the other parameters unaltered.

Select the Circular Plate with Holes prototype under the model type Surfaces/Plates. Drag the item into the right-side window and release the button. The Define Meshing Region dialog box will appear as shown in the next figure.

The basic parameters required to define the circular plate geometrically are the location of the center (Origin) and Radius. To specify the plane of the circular plate the Normal Vector can also be defined. As the meshing parameter, Number of Division along Periphery is required.
