Connecting Layered Shells with Solids and Shells

Application ID: 78261

Layered shell elements, which are used for modeling composite shells, often connected to solid and shell elements in cladding or side-by-side configuration to represent a realistic structure. For such applications, it becomes important to connect layered shell element correctly and easily with other structural elements.

In this tutorial and verification problem, you will learn how to connect layered shell elements to solid and shell elements in different configurations. The results are also compared to a solid model of the same geometry.

This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
