Why do not I get tensions as an orthotropic surface as a result?


No stresses are calculated for orthotropic surfaces: The different stiffness coefficients would result in "smeared" results because they refer to an average value of the thickness. These stresses do not correspond to the orthotropy model.

It is recommended to use the add-on module RF-LAMINATE here .
