Orthotropic material

I am defining an orthotropic material, but definitions aren't so clear, in the help pages :

- x means axial direction ( so parallel to the fiber) ?

- y would be radial (direction of thickness) ?

- z tangential (so the width direction, in the case of a fabric)


I ask the question, because some conventions give z as axial direction.


Tx for your infos.
