Override Shear correction factor for Shell 181

    • saeedfazeli


      Can you help me find out how to change the Shear correction factor for Shell 181 in ANSYS Workbench



    • PSiedlac123

      From documentation:

      13.181.6. Shear Correction (Shell 181)
      The element uses an equivalent energy method to compute shear-correction factors. These factors are predetermined based on the section lay-up at the start of solution.

      If You don't want to model section lay-up You can manipulate section stiffness manually by using SECCONTROL which overrides the program-calculated transverse-shear stiffness. The simplest way for checking how its work will be in Mechanical APDL environment.
