Remove Short Sides (RemoveShortSide) — Eliminate the shortest side of a quadrilateral.
- Maximum acceptable ratio of the lengths of the second shortest and the shortest sides. Type: A real number.
RemoveShortSide is a Rationalizer applied by the Rationalize
Skeleton modifier. It
removes the shortest segment of a quadrilateral
Element into a triangle. When used as part of a
RemoveShortSide is applied only to
in which the ratio of the length of the second shortest side to
the length of shortest side is greater than the given
Table 6.4 summarizes the conditions
RemoveShortSide applies, and
the consequences of its application.
