OOF: Finite Element Analysis of Microstructures
Next: orthorhombic Up: Element Types and their Previous: cubic   Contents
- If unrotated (orientation= 0), a hexagonal element is
isotropic in the plane (the plane of the screen), with the
crystalline -axis in the direction (out of the screen).
See Section 4.3.
- thermoelastic coefficients
- The components of the stiffness matrix are c11, c12, c13, c33, and c44. The two independent coefficients of thermal expansion are alpha11 and alpha33.
