Paperboard Composite Modelling

    • AhmetKaya

      Greetings everyone,

      I'm currently working on modeling a compression test using ANSYS LS-DYNA. Given the rapid compression rate and loading involved, I've opted for the LS-DYNA explicit solver. My inquiry pertains to the modeling of paperboard within the ACP module. Specifically, I need to define the MD (Machine Direction), CD (Cross Direction), and ZD (Thickness Direction) orientations of the paperboard for the compressed structure, and I'm tasked with achieving this using a single ply.

      Could someone kindly guide me on accomplishing this within the ACP module? While I've perused various instructional videos, most of them focus on defining multiple plies and a 90-degree orientation, which isn't suitable for my current project.

      Your assistance is greatly appreciated!

      Warm regards,
      Ahmet K.

      Hello Ahmet,

      You can define the material directions using rosettes  (coordinate systems) and Oriented element sets in Ansys Composite Prepost (ACP). See the following course for more information:


      Let me know how it goes.
