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.
