Fiber orientations?

      Hello, 


      Because I just started with using Ansys, I am  trying to do simple model of beech wood. Geometry is simple 200x200x300mm, one-side force load 20N. 


      Right now I have a problem with defining fiber orientation in wood material. I need to define it for next step of my work, but I dont know, how to do it. 


      I am working on design of cross-laminated beech panel.


      Do you know about some links on forum, tutorial or documents about this topic? 

      Thank you

      Hi Ondrafida,


        Can you please take some time to check the resources provided in this discussion and if you haven't found any, come back with the specifics of the problem you are trying to test, maybe post an image or two to help us better understand?


      Regards,

      Hi Ondrafida,


      Solid element models use the Global Coordinate system for the material orientation unless it is overridden. Shell elements don't use the Global Coordinate system.


      To add to the resources Sandeep has provided, read the posts from this one down to learn about how to orient the material in a shell element model.


      Regards,


      Peter
