      Hi everybody,


      I am realising a short fibers composite modelisation right now.


      I just want to have your help on one point. As you can see on the linked file, i created the matrix with a SOLID185 and the fibers with beam elements assigned to a section (cylinder shape). The first thing i would like to know is : do i have to suppress from the volume (SOLID) the ''volume'' of the beams elements or is it not necessary ?


      The second thing is : how to create interface reaction between the fibers (BEAM) and the matrix ? i already hace the theorical value of the interface strength.


      Thank you for your help !
