In a thermal model in Geostar I am defining orthotropic
materialproperties kx, ky, kz. I am assuming that with
the therematerial properties defined in the MPROP menu the
orthotropic properties are associate with that element group.
Also,in the real constants menu by defining the x,y,z
coordinates for 3points the element orientations are defined that
corresponds to theorthotropic properties defined for that
Is this the proper way to define orthotropic and
anisotropicproperties in Geostar?
When you create the elements make sure the coordinate system
youwant is active, or you are happy with the default,
becausethese real constants are based on the coordinate
system assigned tothe element.
