Cyclic symmetry in FEA using Shell elements

Question asked by Haridas Attur on Mar 31, 2016

Hello SW FEA gurus,

 

I am trying to perform a static analysis  on a part which is symmetric cyclically. I would like to use shell elements as the thickness of the part is 0.004" -0.01" thk.

 

Unfortunately the cyclic symmetry option does not have edges to choose from.

 

How would I go about solving this problem?

 

Thanks,

Harry.
