Examples of orthotropic materials are wood, many crystals, and rolled metals. For example, the mechanical properties of wood at a point are described in the longitudinal, radial, and tangential

Orthotropic material - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. A familiar example of an orthotropic material is wood. In wood, one can define three mutually perpendicular directions at each point in which the properties are different.
Orthotropic may refer to: Orthotropic material is one that has different material properties or strengths in different orthogonal directions e.g., glass-reinforced plastic, or wood In bridge design, an orthotropic deck is one made from solid steel plate
Wood is an example of an orthotropic material. Material properties in three perpendicular directions axial, radial, and circumferential are different. In material science and solid mechanics , orthotropic materials have material properties that differ along three mutually- orthogonal twofold axes of rotational symmetry .
PROPERTIES OF WOOD AND STRUCTURAL WOOD PRODUCTS Wood is an orthotropic material with unique and independent properties in different directions. Because of the orientation of the wood fibers, and the Wood shrinkage is approximately a linear function of moisture content,
Wood is also sometimes considered to be an orthotropic material, at least in small pieces. The distribution of cells is different in the longitudinal along the trunk , radial and tangential directions.
Measurements were made of the principal components of the creep compliance tensor in the radial-longitudinal and the tangential-longitudinal planes of Douglas-fir at 10 percent moisture content. Extensional creep compliance measurements at angles to the grain were also made. The results show that
The orthotropic properties associated with the failure behaviors of the four different species could be used as input variables for the design of wood materials for engineering applications. Acknowledgments
Definition of orthotropic 1 : having the longer axis more or less vertical compare plagiotropic 2 : being, having, or relating to properties such as strength, stiffness, and elasticity that are symmetric about two or three mutually perpendicular planes a piece of straight-grained wood is an orthotropic material
I am attempting to model simulate the behavior of a wood post or column being impacted by an object with a given initial kinetic energy, but am

orthotropic materials have material properties that differ along three mutually-orthogonal twofold axes of rotational symmetry. They are a subset of anisotropic materials , because their properties change when measured from different directions. eg: wood
Wood is generally considered an anisotropic material. In terms of engineering elastic models, wood is usually treated as an orthotropic material. This paper presents an analysis of two principal anisotropic elastic models that are usually applied to wood. The first one, the linear orthotropic model
wood remains an open problem, due to its natural variability, inhomogeneity and anisotropy. Wood as long been recognised as an orthotropic material 1 , with an internal structure
