[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
You can use a plate element with an orthotropic material to represent 
different rigidities in X and Y directions. Check your software manual 
if you are going to use it to model this roof. (If your program does not 
do it, look into program STRAP)
