Fiber Section as a shell element

Post by jon4son56206 » Fri Dec 02, 2022 9:11 am

Dear STKO Team,

Is it possible to model a shell element using a Fiber Section in STKO? So far I have used the Layered Shell Element and would like to compare the results.
I have a small model attached where I tried this, Unfortunately it does not work yet. To model a beam using a Fiber Section, as far as I know, you have to use a Special Purpose Beam Property, is something similar needed for Shells?

Best regards,

No you cant.

section.Fiber is the Fiber section for beam elements.
section.layeredShell is its counter-part for shell elements.
