Dear All,

which real constants should I choose for a cylindrical shell?
I have selected the shell181 element.
I can't find in any books which real constants match shell181 element.

Thank you

RE: real constants shell181


I am not very familiar with APDL (Classic), but it seems like real constants are not supported for shell181 elements.

The way to define sections is through the section-type (sectype command) and secdata.

For more information see: https://www.sharcnet.ca/Software/Ansys/16.2.3/en-u...

Hope this helps.
