    Cyclic symmetry in FEA using Shell elements

    Haridas Attur

      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.
