Hello All -
I am exploring the various optimization strategies available to us within ANSYS for a school project. As part of this project, I am trying to parameterize the ply material for a four-ply laminate.
I need help parameterizing the ply-fabric material property (I want to swap between Carbon/Epoxy and Eglass/Epoxy for all four plies). I've attached a figure of what I've done to set this up in ACP (Pre). However, all attempts at varying the ply material have failed. I only see integer values for the material property input in the parameter window.
I am still determining if I've set this up correctly. Please give me guidance on how to do this.

Hi Govindan -
Thank you for your reply.
I am unsure if I am implementing your solution correctly, but this is not what I'm after. I plan to design experiments (DOE) to run a subsequent optimization study on this four-ply laminate. So for each of these plies, I want ANSYS to develop a design point that models each plies a Carbonfiber/Epoxy or Eglass/Epoxy (not some mix of the properties of the two).
If I follow your guidance, I see ANSYS trying to design a set of experiments iterating on the (continuous) mix of orthotropic material properties, which is different from what I want (see screencap).
Can you provide additional guidance?
