is it possible to set different oriented laminated wood characteristics? Please find it attached.
I am able to create new material and orthotropic material but for whole layer, but i can't my section devide into 3 or 5 or 7 layer oriented (example.: 0*, 90*, 0*,90*,0* degree)
Thank you in advance
Solved! Go to Solution.
I assume that if your panel is intended to work under tension rather than bending you still could try to use the orthotropy type you indicated based on the thickness of layers in each direction and the entire thickness. Otherwise the possible solution is to use the orthotrophy definition shown on the attached picture but in such case you need to find the formulas that describe each of the stiffness (I'm sorry butt I don't have any reference to indicate).
