Complex surface composite ply orientation

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

what is the best way to define the composite ply orientation on a complex surface? As you can see on the pictures below the orientation on the top of the rounded surface is good, but at the edges (at the side of the round surface) the orientation is different from the original.

If we want to represent the real life orientation what is the best option we have?

 

Thanks in advance!

The best way is to use Material Orientation option which is available in the AeroSpace menu. Load the Aerospace profile and try this.
