Studing a Fibre Line within a Profile
I have been trying to set the analysis to study a small recorded fibre within a profile. See picture below where the fibre is positioned.
I have already tried to set as a coordinate probe to give the deflections and stresses in that points, however, I wonder if I could get that as a different solid from the rest of the matrix. For instance, the polyline to behave as a truss element (axial forces only) and a different EA (stiffness) from the rest of the profile.
Any suggestion of a good set in the design and in the mechanical parameters to evaluate the stresses and deflections between the polyline (fibre) and the rest of the matrix?
Thank you very much for your time and help,
