Setting Grid Size

 According to the pdf documentation for v 1.8, p22 "The desired overall mean Grid Size is specified in the corresponding edit field which can be set manually or with the slider control." and "The Subdomain Grid Size and Boundary Grid Size edit fields can be used to prescribe maximum grid sizes for subdomains." What is/are the units for Grid Size, Subdomain Grid Size, and Boundary Grid Size? (linear (m), area (m^2), or volume (m^3)? Kind regards, Randal

FEATool is in essence unitless, so whatever unit you define your geometry to be in. But in the sense of specifying "grid size" for grid generation, this typically refers to the target for the mean cell width or "diameter" (as in a length scale).
