HelloArray,n In that sense I modelled "shear rigid" and "bending rigid" beam by modifying the shear modulus and modulus of elasticity respectively I am not really convinced/sure about this statement. There is a proportional relation between shear modulus and young's modulus {E=2G(1+2μ)}, so I doubt whether you can decouple these 2 effects the way you explained. You may try using a membrane element to model only shear. Check thishttps://forum.ansys.com/discussion/24501/membrane-simulation-using-shell181#latest.nRegards,Ishan.nn
