Fiber Section Discretization

Post by Pez » 22 Dec 2015, 16:43

Hi,

It would be better to increase max number of fibers in a section or adding a tool to subdivide section into fibers manually in a symmetric way with rectangular fibers. For example I can not divide the cover part into more fibers to have more gradual cracking or the size and density of fibers in large section like wall sections are nonuniform.

Regards,

Pez

Dear Pez,

You may increase the number of section fibres within the Element Class module.

Dear Gronti,

I know that but I mean there is no feature to increase the fiber numbers in section edges. For example for large shear wall sections you have to increase a number and software subdivide the section with non-uniform mesh density with triangle fibers through cross section. It is not possible to divide cover concrete. There is no possibility to control fiber number and pattern through cross section that is what I mean.

Thanks,

Pez

Dear Pez,

Thank you for your suggestion to allow the user to specify the number of fibres at each region of the section independently. We will consider for implementation in a future version of the program.
