    In what particular area? Stress analysis? Fluid Dynamics? Heat Transfer?

    A yahoo search that took all of about .5 sec resulted in the following:

    help needed for modeling cracks in ansys


    I am doing my m.tech project on fracture mechanics..

    I have to model orthotropic plate containing holes frm which 2cracks are emanating radially frm each hole.

    my problem is i have to apply out of plane loading like bending moment and torsion.

    So can any pls suggest for following problems

    1.which element is suitable for above problem..?
    2.how to model multiple cracks in ANSYS..?
    3.How to apply moments over a plate..?
    4.how to model orthotropic plate...?

    thanks in advance...
