Mapped Coordinate System for L-Shape
Posted May 15, 2013, 5:19 PM EDT Structural Mechanics & Thermal Stresses Version 4.2a, Version 4.3a 1 Reply
I would like to simulate the deformation of an L-Shape made of carbon fibers. In the beginning the L has an angle of 90 degrees but after it is cured in the oven, there is a spring-in effect, that means the angle gets smaller. Sadly I can't attach the model for better understanding because it's too big. In my model I have 8 layers of carbon: 4 layers of 0 degrees and 4 of 90 degrees. I think the best way to solve is with a Mapped Coordinate System, but I couldn't manage to solve it for this case.
Can anybody help?
Thanks a lot!
