|1.||In the tree of the Model browser, next to Rigid elements, select .|
The display of Rigid elements is turned off in the model graphics.
|2.||From the animation controls, animate the model and observe the ply behavior.|
|3.||In the tree of the Model browser, next to the following elements: Resin1, Resin2, Punch, Binder and Die, select .|
The display of the selected elements is turned off in the model graphics. Only the plies are visible.
|4.||From the toolbar, select , and the Contour panel appears.|
Note that for Result type, the following options are available for multilayer composite forming simulations:
|•||Fiber rotation (derived result)|
|•||Fiber orientation (derived result)|
|•||USR1 = Stresses in fiber1|
|•||USR2 = Stresses in fiber2|
|•||USR6 = tangent of shear angle|
|5.||For Result type, select %Thinning-solids(s), and then click Apply.|
The Nodal distance between the top ply and bottom ply for the last time step is displayed as a contour, as you see in the following figure. This contour does not change with time.
|6.||From the Model browser, right-click, and select Create > Derived Result:|
|7.||In the Expression Builder that appears, populate the fields as follows:|
|•||For Label, enter Fiber Rotation.|
|•||Click Insert. At the bottom of the dialog, in the field under Expression, S4 appears.|
|•||For Show required, select the downward arrows.|
|•||For Frame, select Time: 0.0000e+000.|
|•||In the field under Expression, enter a hyphen (-) after S4, and then click Insert. F1.S4 appears next to the hyphen and the command reads: S4-F1.S4|
|•||Check that the fields in the Expression Builder look like the ones in the following figure, and then click Apply. |
On the Contour panel, a new Result type, Fiber Rotation(s), is added to the drop down menu.
|9.||For Result type, select Fiber Rotation(s).|
|10.||In the Model browser, turn off Ply 2, Ply 3 and Ply 4.|
|11.||In the Contour panel, for Layers, select Layer 1, and then click Apply.|
The Fiber Rotation for Layer1 is displayed you see in the following figure:
|12.||In the Model browser, right-click, and then select Create > Derive Result.|
|13.||In the Expression Builder, select the options as you see in the following figure. In the editor under Expression, copy and paste the following string: VectorFromScalar(cos(S4),sin(S4),0.000000000000,"elem")|
A new result type called Fiber Orientation (s) appears under the contour and vector panel.
|15.||For Result type, select Fiber Orientation (s).|
|16.||For Layers, select Layer 1. |
|17.||On the Display tab, do the following:|
|•||For Size scaling, select By Magnitude and enter 1.0.|
|•||For Color by, select Direction.|
The Fiber Orientation is displayed for each element with a vector as you see in the following figure:
