@Jckcdt: Same problem or do You have a different outcome?

Hello,

Even if it's not related to the problem presented in the topic, I had to deal with this one too. For my experience, when you see these green dots, its in fact a matter of jacobian and mesh refinement.

Hello Bernd, hello Jckcdt,

thank You for Your reply and the kind offer to have a look at the geometry. You are right, the mesh was not good. An extruded mesh worked a lot better and the results are faster! :) Thank You again!
Cheers,

PJ
