Dear Subashni,

Thanks for your prompt reply. It seems that Ansys tutorials are focused in 3D solid modelling but most of civil, aerial and maritime structures are meshed with shells and beams elements. Thus, stiffened panels modelling with hybrid or offsets beams or shell elements it would be really useful. For example, ship structures are usually modelled by shell and offsets beams but I was not able to find how to model offsets beams (except by moving centroid beam in a manual or approximate manner). Thanks again
