Calculation RFEM 5.xx

When analyzing a timber panel as an orthotropic surface, an error message appears saying that the Poisson's ratio has to be within a certain interval. What should I do?

Answer

In this case, it is not sufficient to only set the stiffness type to "orthotropic." You also need to select an orthotropic material model for the material, otherwise the stiffness material is defined singularly.
