Anisotropic shell elements in RM Bridge

The implementation of FEM shell elements as a supplement to the beams in RM Bridge Enterprise, is a useful tool. Sometimes it will be useful to model the shell elements with different properties in the longitudinal direction compared to the transverse direction. Also, sometimes it is required to manipulate the axial stiffness compared to the bending stiffness. The opportunity to create a anisotropic shell element would therefor be a great supplement.
