Acceptable aspect ratio in simulation in Solidworks

I have a simulation where elements in my area of interest have an aspect ratio of about 10-15. The jacobian ratio in that area is good, about 1. Will I get results with precision ? Generally, what is the acceptable aspect ratio for a simulation in SW?

10-15 is definitely high. I've heard in the 3-1 to 5-1 range is typically acceptable. You have to keep in mind if it is just a few elements that have a high aspect ratio and they are not at high stress areas than it doesn't really affect your results.
