Plane Stress Analysis with an Ansiotropic Plate

    • Awlad


      I am an user of APDL. I am working with an anisotropic plate (using material properties of silicon), which is fixed at four sides. The plate has some thickness and subjected to pressure. Basically, I am trying to do a bending simulation of an anisotropic plate. I would like to use 2D PLANE element. What could be a suitable 2D PLANE element, which can offer transverse deflection Uz? For example, I checked with element type PLANE13 and PLANE223. But, the DOF is only Ux and Uy -- NOT Uz. Any suggestion please? Thanks,
