PreVABS Core Modelling/Meshing

  1. Makoto Ueno


    Is there a quick and straightforward way to model a solid core that fills the entire interior space of an airfoil section in PreVABS?


    Thank you

      Can you try the vabs/ANSYS we recently developed

                I'm little confused about the fibre orientation in Cross-sectional lamina schema data file in PreVABS, for example in the case of a biaxial[+45/-45] material we'll have mechanical properties for the biaxial coupon. Do I have give this two fibre orientations or I can use 0 deg since the layer'll be in +45/-45. if I have to provide two or even three orientations in case of a triaxial material,  How can I provide that in Cross-sectional lamina schema data file. 

      Thank for your time.
