Setting up Orthotropic Material

Hi all,

I need some help setting up an orthotropic material in Simulation. My part has carbon Uni that is wound radially over the exterior of a metal body (imagine holding carbon uni towpreg and letting it wrap onto something that is spinning in a lathe). So when Solidworks is asking me for Elastic Modulus in X Y and Z this doesnt really apply... I need to enter the modulus in the radial direction..

does this make sense? Any help is much appreciated.
