Because the wood model is transversely isotropic, the orientation of the wood specimen must be set relative to
the global coordinate system of LS-DYNA. The transversely isotropic constitutive relationships of the wood
material are developed in the material coordinate system (i.e., the parallel and perpendicular directions). The
user must define the orientation of the material coordinate system with respect to the global coordinate system.
Appropriate coordinate transformations are formulated in LS-DYNA between the material and global coordinate
systems. Such coordinate transformations are necessary because any differences between the grain axis and
the structure axis can have a great effect on the structural response.

Keep in mind that the wood grain axis may not always be perfectly aligned with the wood post axis because trees
do not always grow straight. It is up to the analyst to set the alignment of the grain relative to the wood post in
LS-DYNA simulations.
