Is it possible to transform an orthotropic stiffness tensor to another coordinate system thereby creating anisotropy? My model is 2D and I'm using 'quad' elements. I'd like to have the principal material directions for the stiffness tensor rotated from the global coordinates. I don't see a way to do this with 'quad' elements. Many thanks.
