Anisotropic material settings - Abaqus user profile

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

 

I am relatively new to hypermesh and I have some difficulties to make my model run.

My model is a solid model of an anisotropic material. I have conciously checked the material orientation of the different components thanks to a TCL script that I've been given and all the elements are oriented how they should be.

However, when defining the material property, I don't see what I am supposed to do. I have selected the Orientation, UseOrientationId option, which set the value to 0. However, when running the model, it crashes because of this error:

***ERROR: PARAMETER ORIENTAT MUST HAVE A VALUE
 LINE IMAGE: *SOLID SECTION, ELSET=HMprop_Resin, ORIENTATION = ,
             MATERIAL=Central adhesive
  *SOLID SECTION, ELSET=HMprop_Resin, ORIENTATION = , MATERIAL=Central adhesive

So where should I set that the orientation is the mesh orientation?

Thanks in advance,

A bit more of information after a day passed working on the model:

What I would like to do is to define the element coordinate systems, which are correct, as coordinate systems for the anisotropic property.
