Assign steel Fibers materials on Concrete Cylinder.

      I am trying to verify experimental data ( Load Vs deflection graph) with simulation results.  


      Length of steel fiber   Lf = 60mm (End hooked type)


      Diameter of steel fiber Df = 0.75mm


      Density of fiber ? = 0.0781 g/cm3


      Volume percent of steel fibers (V) = 4%


      Orientation of steel fibers is random


       Dimension of Cylinder dia 100mm X 200mm


      How can we simulate such type of model? 


      Waiting for Positive response.


      Thank you.

      Hi nevertrust.


       


      You can use Ansys Material Designer to find out the equivalent homogeneous material property of the fiber-reinforced concrete. A detailed post about Material Designer can be found here: https://studentcommunity.ansys.com/thread/material-designer-introduced-in-19-2/?order=all#comment-98cbb0ab-2e10-462b-9884-a96f002dd0de

      Thank you Wenlong for your reply.


      I use ANSYS 18.1 but didn't find ANSYS Material Designer. 


      Do I have to use some extension or version should be upgraded?


      In Post 19.2 was used.


      Thank you.

      Hi,


      I am not 100% sure but I think Material designer was added only recently like after 2019R1. So please use the latest version of Ansys.
