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 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?
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
