zone cmodel command

Syntax

zone cmodel keyword

Primary keywords:

assign    list    load

Assign, load, or get information on a zone constitutive model. This command associates a constitutive model with specified zones in the grid. It also allows querying of properties and states of constitutive models, and dynamic loading of user-defined mechanical models as DLLs.

assign keyword <overlay i > <range>

assigns a mechanical material model to all zones in the range.

The optional keyword overlay assigns either two overlaid sets of five constant-strain tetrahedral elements to each zone ( i =2 ), or one set of five tetrahedral elements to each zone ( i =1 ). The default is set to double-overlaid elements. Use of zones with a single overlay for mechanical calculations is not recommended.

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

list keyword
names <s >

Outputs available mechanical model keywords, names and version numbers. Output is restricted to the model named s if supplied.

properties <s >

Outputs the property list for each mechanical model. Output is restricted to the model named s if supplied.

states <s >

Outputs the possible state flags for each mechanical model. Output is restricted to the model named s if supplied.

load <s >

attempts to dynamically load a DLL version of a constitutive model, identified by s. Once loaded, the DLL model can be assigned to zones in the grid using the zone cmodel assign command and range keywords. See Writing New Constitutive Models for a guide to creating user-defined models as DLLs. zone cmodel load can only be applied if model configure plugin is invoked. Also see the zone cmodel load command.

s can either be the keyword used by the model, which should expand into the model dll name as modelname006.dll (where ‘name’ is the name provided by s), or it can be full name of the dll. If a relative filename is given, both the current directory and the directory FLAC3D is installed in will be searched, including subdirectories.
