Non-circular fibre geometry in chopped fibre RVE

    • Andrew Carlin

      Hi there,


      Is it possible with the chopped fibre composite RVE in material designer to change the fibre cross-section? e.g. to say have e-glass fibres that are triangular, or lobular .etc?


      I appreciate you could do this with a basic user defined RVE with a single fibre (or a small amount), but trying to generate and RVE with many randomly oriented, short fibres, would be difficult.


      Any help or guidence is much appreciated,
