Question Assign new properties after meshing

Hi there,

I have a plate with the dimensions 100x100 cm and the thickness varies. The thickness was tested every 1 cm and documented in a 100x100 matrix.
I would like to do a buckling analysis and use the accurate thicknesses of the plate for that. Is there is a command, with which I can assign after the meshing each sub-element a new individual thickness? Or whether it makes sense to make a model with many elements. So to create a new element for each tested thickness (with the tested thickness) and then to create a model with many different elements. Or is that too time-consuming?
