block zone cmodel command


block zone cmodel keyword ... <range>

Primary keywords:

list    load    assign    imass

Assign a constitutive model to zones.

list keyword

List a summary of all dynamically loaded zone constitutive models, or, if the keyword used specifies a s, outputs information only for the model specified by s.

names <s >

List names and version numbers. (This is the default.)

properties <s >

List available properties.

states <s >

List possible states.

load s

Dynamically load a constitutive model. The dynamic library should have the name “modelmodel006.dll.” For example, model “mohr” would have a library name of “modelmohr006.dll.”

assign keyword

Assigns the dynamic constitutive model model to all of the zones in the range. If not already loaded, the system will attempt to automatically load the library.

The mechanical constitutive models are described in Constitutive Models, and the creep models are in Creep Constitutive Models.

classical viscoelastic model known as the Burgers substance which composed of a Kelvin model and a Maxwell model (only available for the creep option; see the Burgers model description).


viscoplastic model combining the Burgers model and the Mohr-Coulomb model (only available for the creep option; see the Burgers-Mohr model description).


double-yield (cap) elasto-plasticity model (see the Double-Yield model description).
