block zone property command


block zone property <density f > keyword ... <range>

Make a constitutive model(s) property assignment. Properties are name value pairs where the name is the keyword given in the command and the value type is specific to the property.

Models and Properties

The special density keyword can be given as well, assigning density to zones; this is not a constitutive model property but stored within the zone class.

All constitutive models have properties associated with them.

There are 19 basic mechanical constitutive models in 3DEC and 11 option-specific mechanical models. All are classified as follows: elastic, elastic-plastic, dynamic, creep, thermal.
