I have a very large ANSYS model with many loads and load cases that results in an array of stresses and strains. I need to update and refine the geometry and loading in a small portion of it, while maintaining accuracy in the results.

1. Is a substructuring approach appropriate?

2. Is it feasible to delete the portion of the model I want to refine, create a superelement of the 'boundary' model remaining, generate the refined model, then apply the 'boundary' model to the refined model?

Any input is very helpful.
