Abaqus Orthotropic Composite

Test ID



The TestPak consists of tensile stress strain and Poisson ratio measurements made in the flow direction and transverse directions, Poisson’s Ratio in the 1-2 direction, and Poisson's Ratio in the 2-3 direction. Poisson Ratio is also measured in the 1-3 direction. The shear modulus in the 1-2 direction is also measured using DIC techniques. For details on specific tests, select the appropriate individual tests.

Included Tests

1x M-101 Poisson’s Ratio and Tensile Modulus
1x M-206 Tensile Stress-Strain, Strength, Modulus and Poisson's Ratio
1x M-219 Shear Stress-Strain


Temperature dependence can also be incorporated into this model by ordering the model at multiple temperatures.

This TestPak provides properties for filling out the lamina composite model when evaluating orthotropic structured composites. The shear modulus in the 1-3 and 2-3 are calculated as there is currently no good test method to measure these properties.
