How to combine/superpose models of different materials

Hey there,

I have a problem. I have to combine a concrete model with a steel fibrous model. Is there a possibility to superpose two material models?

Is it possible? And how I supposed to do it?

I use Ansys Workbench 18.2.

Thank you!

Here is one discussion about creating a random distribution of fibers in a concrete model.

Dear Peter,

thank you very much. Thats a good possibility, I will try it. My professor likely prefers to superpose the solutions of two different models. Would that be possible or are the random distributed fibers the only way to simulate fiber enhanced concrete?

Thank for your efforts!

Dear Philipp,

You can also have steel fiber reinforcement in a geometric pattern if you prefer.

The fibers are bonded to the concrete, so there is just the one integrated solution, there is no superposition of solutions possible in this problem.
