10.13.2. Parts - Solvers (Structured) - Solution (2D Shells)

This window lets you set solution options for 2D shell Parts.

Type of Solution

Select whether you want to compute a membrane solution or a solution with full bending moments.

Shell material location

Shell segments have no geometrical thickness, so this option lets you select the location of the shell material relative to its geometric position.

Left

Material is located to the left of the shell as you progress from the first node to the last node.

Center

Material is located equally on either side of the shell (that is, from -h/2 to h/2, where h is the thickness).

Right

Material is located to the right of the shell as you progress from the first node to the last node.
