Hello everyone,

I am attempting to do an impact analysis for a wood based structure in explicit dynamics. But i dont know how to model or map the orthotropic material properties of wood in ansys. I have incorporated the ** young's modulus** (in all three directions), **shear modulus** (in all three directions) and **poission ratio ** (in all three directions). But still errror comes up solving the explicit dynamic analysis namely as **Solver initialization error** . if anyone knows how to map the wood properties specially for the explicit analysis,please let me know.

Thanks in advance.
