Hi, I'm struggling with a seemingly basic issue in hypermesh. I'd like to know if there's a way to reverse the direction of a cbush element? That is, interchanging node A <-> node B of the cbush. Actually, the same question applies for any king of 1D element ... Thanks in advance!
Hi all, I'm facing a problem I can't fix. When I want to perform my dynamic analysis, I get 8769 errors like below : ERROR ID: 197 REFERENCE DIRECTION IS ALMOST NORMAL TO SHELL ID=54115 Could you please help me to fix it ? For confidential issues, I can't illustrate my model... Best regards, Raphael
Hi, I was trying to introduce the mechanical properties for a composite component made of CFRP (Composite Fibre Reinforced Polymer). As I'm a beginner, I'm following the book Practical Aspects of Finite Element Simulation by Altair University. In there, I've found mechanical properties for many other materials, as I show in the image, but I can't find some general properties to define CFRP. Moreover, as it is an orthotropic material, I've learnt from the tutorials that I need to specify more data. Can anyone help me to find the general properties I need in the picture for MAT8 in order to define CFRP material? If possible, I'd like to see the reference for checking it up. Thanks in advance, Julio
