Re: Elmer Challenge

Can the shell solver be used to define the deformed shape, followed up by second solver (elastic plates for example) to calculate stress and strain using the deformed shape? I have tried several attempts at this method - but as of yet been unsuccessful. It seems like a valid work around. Using the l...

Or does this require the use of two solvers at the same time?
