how to choose a fiber orientation for shell element

    • sabrina2019

      Hi every one 

      I am working on the behavior of FRP confined concrete under axial loading using ANSYS APDL 

      i have chosen the shell element to model FRP unidirectionel sheet and i have to orient the fiber in lateral direction of the concrete to create the confinement 

      so i do this following step 

      preprocessor - section - shell - add/edit - 

      my question is about the angle to specify for fiber orientation (0 or 90 degree) 

      could any one help me 

      i will be very grateful 

      thank you
