How can I check the composite stress in the fiber direction?

Recommended Posts

Hey Guys!


I would like to check the stress in the fiber direction in a composite body. I did not find XX stress, or P1 stress for a given ply in the fiber direction or perpendicular to that.
How can I check these stress and strain values?

Thanks for your help in advance!


Best regards,

Hi there!


Thanks for the quick answer. I was aware of these output requests but I did not know that proper meaning of the composite stresses: P1, P3, normal stress X, normal stress Y direction etc.

How can I check the stress in X direction of a ply? X direction is respect to the fiber orientation of the ply, so these stresses is interpreted in the ply system?
