Plane strain condition for spot weld in optistruct

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

I am exploring to know about representation of plane stress condition for a spot welded 2 specimens.

How can we represent that in optistruct?

Could you please suggest me

Thanks in advance

A plane-strain option is available for pure 2D applications.These properties can be controlled using the PSHELL Bulk Data Entry. For example, the MID# fields on the PSHELL, can be used to define material properties to include bending, transverse shear, membrane-bending coupling, and so on.
