By using the ABAQUS FEA software I am trying to find a component of the effective stiffness matrix, C11, by applying a tensile load to a composite material that is comprised of two different materials. I have successfully set up the geometry, applied the boundary conditions, and load. However, I am lost when trying to figure out how to figure out what I need from here. Is there a certain method to follow to figure out the modulus in a certain direction?
