Shell Property Types
There are two basic kinds of shells:
Used for 2D and 3D shells
Consists of a single material whose properties do not vary through the thickness of the shell
Used for 3D shells
Consists of one or more materials whose properties may vary through the thickness of the shell
There are three types of shell properties:
Homogeneous—Assigned to homogeneous shells.
Laminate Stiffness—Assigned to laminate shells to specify their degree of stiffness.
Laminate Layup—Assigned to laminate shells to define them as layers of shells.
For more information about defining these property types, see the description of Property Type.
