Hi everyone, I am modeling an additive manufacturing steel element and I have to define non-isotropic material (so an-isotropic or orthotopic), then I have to perform a non-linear analysis. Is it possible to add the non linear behavior to orthotropic or an-isotropic material? As for isotropic material MAT1 I can use MATS1 and TABLES1. Best regards Martina
Hi everyone, I am trying to model a helicopter blade, i have imported the CAD model.. etc until i created Plys. whenever i set the material type to orthotropic and hit update, at the bottom left it says "cannot compute material normal" and when i go back into the ply, the material type is back again to "all". would you be able to help me with this issue? Kind Regards, Mohamed
Hi to all, i'm trying to simulate a plate (PCOMP) in which the central layer is a honeycomb layer. But... is there a way to insert a 3d orthotropic material in hypermesh with NASTRAN interface? or this option is not available yet? Does anyone have some idea how i can proceed?
