This instruction enables the user to enter the properties of
various materials.
"MATE" ( < "LOI" numldc > . . . )
The word "MATE" is compulsory and may only be used once, at the
beginning of the data sequence relative to the instruction
MATERIALS.
The numbers introduced by the "LOI" directive may be in arbitrary
order, and some numbers may be missing.
This is very useful in the case of multiple materials: one can
add or move material data in the input file without changing the number
of the corresponding material law (see "MULT"
, page C.380).
If the "LOI" directive is absent, the number automatically attributed
to the law by EUROPLEXUS is the index of the material in the
order its constitutive law is listed in the input data.
Do not forget the corresponding dimensioning (GBA_0070).

The "FANT" material may be allocated to any element, with
the effect of ’eliminating’ it from the mesh, as far as
mechanical resistance is concerned.

To print out (on the log file!) an uptodate version of the above
element and material
tables, just run EUROPLEXUS with any input data file by adding the
option OPTI DPEM (see also page GBH_0090).
C.105
This directive allows to read the material data from an
auxiliary file.
"MATE" < "FICHIER" 'nom.fic' >
In certain cases the data may be bulky. It is then advised
to store the data on an auxiliary file in order to shorten the
main input data file. The auxiliary file is activated by means of
the keyword "FICHIER", followed by the full name (under Unix)
of the file. Therefore, only the words "MATE" "FICHIER"
’nom.fic’ remain in the main input file.
The auxiliary file (in free format) will contain the whole set of
material data, with the exception of the "MATE" keyword.
To return to the main input data file, the auxiliary file must
be terminated by the keyword "RETOUR".
C.106
This directive allows adding a localised damping on some
d.o.f.s of some particular nodes.
"AMORTISSEMENT" ( /LECDDL/ "BETA" beta "FREQ" freq /LECTURE/ )
The value β=1 corresponds to the critical damping for the
frequency f. All frequencies are damped.
The components with a frequency lower than the cutoff frequency:
f_{c}=β f will be damped in a pseudoperiodic manner
while those having higher frequencies will be damped
in an aperiodic manner.
This damping is proportional to the mass M and
to the particles velocity v, and may be used
in order to damp out preferably the structures
without influence on the internal fluid, for example.
One adds an external force F_{amort} of the form:
F_{amort} = − 2 β ω M v 
where ω=2π f.
It is evident that the work of external forces will be modified
by the damping forces.
This directive differs from the global damping directive
(OPTI AMOR ..., see page H.30) mainly by the fact that
here the region to which damping is applied may
be specified by the user, while in the other case
the damping applies to the whole model (but limitedly to
some element types, see page H.30).
C.108
This directive allows to model nonlinear supports of type spring or damper. It may be used only for the elements of type "APPUI" (material points with 6 d.o.f.s). The user gives the evolution curve of the force applied by the support as a function of its displacement (for the springs) or of its velocity (for the dampers). These supports work in translation or in rotation.
"APPUI" [ "RESS" ; "AMOR" ] [ "TRAN" ; "ROTA" ] "CMPX" cmpx "CMPY" cmpy "CMPZ" cmpz "COEF" coef "NUFO" nufo <"MASS" mass> <"INCR" incr> <"DECX" decx> <"DECY" decy> /LECTURE/
The user must define a vector corresponding to the rotation axis or translation axis of the support. This vector does not need to be normalised, just its direction matters. This direction defines the local reference frame of the support: it is the projection of the displacement (or of the velocity) of the concerned node onto this axis that allows to determine the reaction force.
An APPUI element may not work
simultaneously as a spring AND as a damper, nor in translation AND
in rotation. Therefore it will be sometimes necessary to define several
APPUI elements, geometrically coincident, in order to correctly
define the local stiffness.
The function defining the force generated by the support in response to
displacement or velocity of its application point on the supported
structure is of the form:
F = coef f(D) or F = coef f(V) 
with f(D) or f(V) given by the user. Warning: these values have a sign. Do not forget to give the force with the opposite sign as the displacement (this is a reminder).
For the estimation of the stability step, it is necessary to know the
local slope of the behaviour curve. To this end, the user must specify
the keyword "INCR". The computation of the local stiffness
will then be (by default, incr=1.E4):
K = (F(D+incr)−F(D))/incr or C = (F(V+incr)−F(V))/incr 
In the case that the structure is not in equilibrium for a zero
displacement at the beginning of the calculation, the user may impose
a translation of vector (decx, decy) of the behaviour curve.
The computed force will then be (by default, decx and decy are zero):
F = ( coef f(D+decx) ) − decy 
( in fact : decy = coef f(decx) )
The components of the ECR vector are:
ECR(1): Force (resp. moment) along X.ECR(2): Force (resp. moment) along Y.
ECR(3): Force (resp. moment) along Z.
ECR(4): Current stiffness.
ECR(5): Current velocity (or angular velocity).
ECR(6): Total displacement (or rotation).
ECR(7): Applied force (or moment) to the node (reaction force).
C.109
This directive allows to model a complex nonlinear support, having arbitrary stiffness and damping values along the 6 dofs of the concerned node. It may only be used in conjunction with elements of type "APPUI" (material point with 6 dofs). The user gives the evolution curve of the reaction force generated by the support as a function of the displacement or of the velocity of the associated node.

The stiffnesses and the dampings are given along the global (fixed) axes of the problem. Each of the 4 associated functions applies to the 3 corresponding stiffnesses (or dampings). For translational stiffnesses one can prescribe three different functions.
If a keyword is missing, the corresponding value is zero, and the
order in which the parameters are specified is irrelevant.
The reaction force generated by the support has the form
(e.g., assuming translation along Ox):
F_{x} = k_{x} f_{1}(D_{x}) + a_{x} f_{2}(V_{x}) 
If the displacement (or the velocity) is positive, the function
f1 (or f2) must be negative in order to obtain a correct reaction.
The components of the ECR vector are:
ECR(1): Reaction of the support along X.ECR(2): Reaction of the support along Y.

This directive allows to model a complex nonlinear twonode spring, having arbitrary stiffness and damping values along the 3 dofs of the two concerned nodes. It may only be used in conjunction with RL3D elements (twonode spring). Stiffness and damping are given along local axes. The first local axe (xloc) is defined by the direction of the element that why the element must have a nonzero length. Second (yloc) and third (zloc) axes are defined by the user. The user gives the evolution curve of the reaction force generated by the spring as a function of the displacement or of the velocity.

The stiffnesses and the dampings are given along the local axes of the problem in the initial configuration. If a single function is specified for stifnesses (dampings), it applies to the 3 corresponding stiffnesses (dampings).
If a keyword is missing, the corresponding value is put to zero.
The order in which the parameters are specified is irrelevant.
The reaction force generated by the spring has the form
(e.g., assuming translation along the xloc axis):
F_{x} = k_{x} f_{1}(D_{x}) + a_{x} f_{2}(V_{x}) 
If the displacement (or the velocity) is positive, the function
f1 (or f2) must be negative in order to obtain a correct reaction.
The components of the ECR vector are:

"DRUC" "RO" rho "YOUNG" young "POISSON" nu ... ... "TRACTION" sigt "COMPRESSION" sigc ... ... < "FRACTURE" pf > /LECTURE/
The values of sigt, sigc and pf are absolute values.
If P defines the pressure (positive under tension) and SIG*
the Von Mises criterion, the DruckerPrager criterion
is defined by:
Criterion = SIG*  cohe + P * pente ( always <= 0 )
The 2 parameters : cohe and pente (slope), are calculated from
sigt and sigc values, they are printed after the reading of the data.
The parameter cohe (cohesion) corresponds to a maximum
Von Mises under nonexistant pressure.
The slope is the straight line limiting the domain,
in the coordinate system (P,SIG*).
In the space of the principal stresses the criterion
determines a cone the axis of which is the straight line of equation:
sig(1)= sig(2) = sig(3).
The maximum stresses: sigt and sigc correspond to the values
observed during uniaxial tests without confinement. These two
points enable the DruckerPrager domain to be defined.
The value of the parameter "FRACTURE" enables
the behaviour of concrete to be represented in a very simplified way.
Two domains may be distinguished:
 Brittle rupture Ductile rupture (strong compressions)
Most often one may take pf = sigc/3. A great value for pf delay the
fracturation.
The different components of the ECR table are as follows:
ECR(1): pressureECR(2): Von Mises
ECR(3): equivalent plastic strain
ECR(4): D.P. criterion ( always <= 0 )
ECR(5): cohesion (becomes nonexistant in the case of brittle rupture)
This subdirective enables materials with an elastoplastic
behaviour to be used. There are four options:
 "VMIS" "PARF" : perfectly plastic Von Mises material;
 "VMIS" "ISOT" : isotropic Von Mises material;
 "VMIS" "DYNA" : isotropic Von Mises material depending on
strain rate;
 "VMIS" "TETA" : isotropic Von Mises material depending on
temperature.

For the Symonds and Cowper law, the dynamic traction curve is
derived from the static one through a multiplicative coefficient
which depends upon the strain rate (EPSP):
SIG(dyna) = SIG(stat) * ( 1 + ( EPSP / D ) ** (1/P) )
Indicatively, for the stainless steel 304 L, experimental results
suggest: D = 100 s1 and P = 10 (Forrestal and Sagartz 1978).
For ordinary steel, it is usually assumed:
D = 40 s1 and P = 5 (Symonds 1965).
For titanium TI50A, the values suggested are:
D = 120 s1 and P = 9 (Symonds et Chon 1974).
For aluminum alloys, some authors use
D = 6500 s1 and P = 4 (Symonds 1965).
In the case of the ISPRA law, the formulation is similar, but the
multiplying coefficient depends upon the strain (EPS)
as well as on the strain rate (EPSP):
SIG(dyna) = SIG(stat) * ( 1 + ( EPSP / K ) **M )
with the K and M coefficients of the form:
K = EXP( ( A + B * EPS ) / ( 1 + C * EPS ) ) M = ( D + E * EPS ) / ( 1 + F * EPS )
Examples of data (source ISPRACADARACHE):
Material a b c d e f  Steel 304 5.82 168.76 9.62 0.242 2.263 12.77 Steel 316 6.388 86.215 6.457 0.233 0.0 0.0 
For the ARMA model, the dynamic yield curve is obtained as follows:
The dynamic increase factor for the yield stress is given by:
SIG_Y(dyna) = SIG_Y(stat) * DIF_Y DIF_Y = ( EPSP/ 104 ) ** ALFAY
The dynamic increase factor for the ultimate stress is given by:
SIG_U(dyna) = SIG_U(stat) * DIF_U DIF_U = ( EPSP / 104 ) ** ALFAU
Then, the yield curve is defined analytically thanks to the assumption that it is a portion of parabola begining at the onset of hardening and reaching a maximum at the ultimate point.
This model is suited for steel reinforcing bars, so it can be used only with bar and beam elements.
It is suggested in "Dynamic Increase Factors for Steel Reinforcing Bars, L. J. Malvar and J. E. Crawford,
TwentyEighth DDESB Seminar, Orlando, Florida, USA, August 1998" that ALFAY and ALFAU can be
estimated by the expressions:
ALFAY = 0.074  ( 0.040 * fy / 414. ) ALFAU = 0.019  ( 0.009 * fy / 414. )
where fy is the bar yield strengh in MPa.
This formulation is valid for bars with yield stress between 290 and 710 MPa and for strain rates between 10^{4} and 225 s^{1}.
For all formulations, the strain rate EPSP is filtered with a first order lowpass filter:
dEPSP/dt=(EPSPC  EPSP)/tau
with EPSPC the current value of the strain rate and TAU the filter time constant:
TAU = 1 / ( 2 * pi * fc)
with fc the cutoff frequency of the filter.
By time integration, we obtains:
EPSP(n+1) = ( EPSP(n) + (DELTAT / TAU)*EPSPC(n+1) ) / ( 1 + (DELTAT / TAU) ) DELTAT = t(n+1)  t(n)
Furthermore, we supposed that:
BETA = DELTAT / TAU = Cte
and introduced FEPSP1:
FEPSP1 = BETA / (1 + BETA) = DELTAT / (DELTAT + TAU)
FEPSP1 is defined in OPTI FVIT.
Default value is 1, meaning TAU = 0, no filter is applied.
Advised value for FEPSP1 is 0.01.

Each element is isothermal, i.e. its temperature remains
constant during the whole calculation.
Depending upon temperature, the Young’s modulus, the poisson coefficient and the traction
curve are interpolated starting from the values associated
to the known temperatures.
Note that it is possible to define either a temperaturedependant Poisson coefficient or not
which can be sufficient in case of steels for example.
The components of the ECR table are as follows:
ECR(1) : pressure

This is a Von Mises isotropic material whose Young’s modulus and
elastic limit are a function of hydrostatic pressure,
temperature increase and strain rate.

The STEINBERG and GUINAN law uses the Young’s modulus E, and an elastic
limit Y, which vary according to the following expressions:
E = youngz * P1 Y = yield * P1
with:
P1 = 1 + b*P / K**(1/3) + h*dteta yield = MIN ( sigd , sigez*P2 ) P2 = ( 1+beta*EPSP )**n
where:
P is the hydrostatic pressure;K is the compression ratio (ratio between the current density and the initial density);
EPSP is the total equivalent strain rate;
dteta is the temperature increase with respect to the initial temperature.
On the other hand, when the current temperature (teta = tini + dteta)
exceeds the melting temperature of the material (tfus), it is
assumed that the material is liquefied: the Young’s modulus and
the elastic limit are then taken as zero.
The various components of the ECR table are as follows:

This directive allows to describe the behaviour of an elastoplastic material that may undergo some damage, according to the Lemaitre model. There is coupling between damage and plasticity, represented by the Von Mises criterion. The damage evolution rate is a function of the triaxiality ratio of stresses and of the equivalent plastic strain rate. A failure criterion is implicitly contained within the model: rupture occurs when the damage exceeds a critical value. Two optional parameters allow to introduce a limitation of the damage rate (thanks to the delayed damage model) in order to avoid the mesh dependency.

This option is used to define materials such as concrete, soil,
rock, etc.
The law of behaviour used in this model is based on plasticity;
it takes into account three modes of damaging the material:
1) Damage due to traction;
2) Damage due to shear;
3) Damage due to hydrostatic pressure.
A material of this type possesses 38 input parameters; however,
only some of them are compulsory. Each parameter is entered into the
input file
by means of a keyword, these words can be entered in any order. Just
remember that the data placed between angle brackets are not compulsory,
for example: <"PREC" prec>.
The numerical values of the different parameter are entered in
absolute value. Moreover the following conventions have been adopted
for the outputs:
positive values: tension stresses;
negative values: compression stresses.
The option "BETON" can be repeated as many times as necessary.
The data can be classified in 4 groups.

This kind of damage occurs in 3 phases:
 a) elastic behaviour; b) cracked elastic behaviour;
 c) perfectly plastic behaviour.

The model takes into account the anisotropy induced by the cracking.
The opening and closing of cracks is managed by the model.
For an axisymmetric or threedimensional analysis, the user can
enter different characteristics for the three directions.
In the case of an initially cracked material, one can input the
opening of cracks by means of initial deformations
along the cracked direction.
Triaxial tests, carried out at different confinement levels,
are necessary to determine the various parameters of the model. The
results are then linearized and entered onto the diagram (sig1sig3,
eps1). The user may distinguish two different domains:
 a) brittle behaviour corresponding to the confinement levels, i.e. low sig3. This behaviour can be schematized by a decreasing branch and a negative workhardening. b) ductile behaviour corresponding to the high confinement levels, i.e. high sig3. They can be schematized by a decrease in the elastic modulus and the appearance of irreversible strains and workhardening.
Hence, the existence of a threshold stress of confinement, sig3,
has been assumed. It corresponds to the border between the two domains:
sig3 = PCT.

This material allows modelling friction between a prestressing cable and
concrete according to BPEL rools (Prestressed Concrete with Borderlines).
In French, BPEL stands for Beton Precontraint aux Etats Limites.
This is a particular Coulombtype friction law where the friction
force threshold depends on tension in the cable. At each time step,
the tension in a cable node is calculated first (mean tension between
those in two cables elements using the considered node), then the
friction force is calculated ans compared with a threshold.

This option allows to associate to the materials VON MISES ISOTROPE and VON MISES PARFAIT different damage laws, and to request the calculation of several fracture criteria. Now, only one criterion (TulerButcher) is available.

The element types accepting these materials are: in 2D elements TRIA, CAR1 and CAR4 and in 3D elements CUBE, CUBE6, CUBE8, PRIS, TETR and PRI6.
Currently the damage model is only available in association
with the materials Isotropic Von Mises, SteinbergGuinan and
dynamic Von Mises.
The isotropic Von Mises material must appear first in the input
file, before the calculation of the damage criteria, if any, and
one of the two damage laws, if necessary.
The TulerButcher is given by the following expression where
σ_{1},σ_{2},σ_{3} representing the principal stresses:
∫ 
 (Max(σ_{1},σ_{2},σ_{3})−σ_{s})
^{λ} dt < ker 
The results stored in the ECR table (5 values) are, according
to the material type:
TulerButcher :
ECR(1) = Maximum principal stress
ECR(2) = Maximum principal deformation
ECR(3) = Octahedral shear stress
ECR(4) = Volume deformation
ECR(5) = TulerButcher criterion
A criterion "LOI 3", is associated with the principal material "LOI 1".

This section describes an elasticdamage material with gradient regularization. The development is still in progress and a more detailed presentation can be found in [889], [890].
This model can be used to predict crack initiation and propagation in a quasibrittle medium (such as glass or concrete) under dynamic loading conditions. In particular, no plasticity is currently accounted for in this model. It can be seen as a variational approach to fracture in the sense of [Francfort and Marigo 1998, Revisiting brittle fracture as an energy minimization problem]. Crack nucleation, kinking, branching, coalescence or arrest can be automatically predicted through energy minimization. It is known that traditional approaches (with or without XFEM numerical schemes) in fracture mechanics may fail in the case of crack initiation from a perfectly regular domain or complex crack topological changes. The variational approach can thus be considered as a unified and complete framework of fracture.
An additional scalar nodal field 0≤α≤ 1, called damage, is introduced to the model. This field depicts a continuous transition between the undamaged part α=0 and the crack α=1. Spurious mesh dependency observed in traditional damage mechanics is suppressed by gradient regularization ∇α. As a consequence, a material characteristic internal length ℓ naturally appears, which determines the size of the damage process zone. This parameter is linked to the maximal tensile stress σm that can be supported by the material.
Only two mandatory fracturetype material parameters need to be entered. One is the fracture toughness Gc defined as the energy needed to create a crack of unit area. Through Irwin’s formula this quantity Gc can be related to the criterion in stress intensity factors KIC. Another parameter is the internal length ℓ or equivalently the maximal tensile stress σm.
From a computational point of view, we need to solve at every time step a boundconstrained (quadratic or convex) minimization problem for damage. For that reason, the parallel linear algebra library PETSc is used to manipulate the Hessian matrix and various vectors. For various options of PETSc used for this material ENGR, it is advised to refer to 12.23.

This directive allows to define materials obtained by
homogenisation through the thickness of different
layers (or plies) each having a linear orthotropic behaviour.

When the BACON option is used, EUROPLEXUS reads the numbers of the
elements associated with this material directly from the BACOn file:
the /LECTURE/ procedure is redundant. Currently, one may read
only one type of laminated material per calculation. On the other hand,
EUROPLEXUS will write on the logical unit (ibacon+1):
1) the element number (1 value) 2) the angle (in degrees) between the first side and the first direction of the laminated (1 value) 3) the components of the symmetric matrices A, B and D ( A(1,1), A(2,1),A(2,2), A(3,1),A(3,2),A(3,3)...) (3x6= 18 values).
For the NBCOUCHE option, the various layers must be described in
growing order of z. In particular, zmax(couche_i) = zmin(couche_i+1).
The value z=0 corresponds to the neutral fiber of the element.
This material allows to take excentricity into account.
For the shells that consider transverse shears, i.e.
DST3, Q4G4, Q4GR, Q4GS, it is necessary to give the values
of G23 and G13.
The various components of the ECR table (values computed in the
local reference of the shell element) are as follows:
Element COQ3:
ECR(1) : Von Mises on the lower face of the shellECR(2) : Von Mises on the upper face of the shell
ECR(3) : d3w/dx3 at the integration point
ECR(4) : d3w/dy3 at the integration point
ECR(5) : d3w/dx2dy at the integration point
ECR(6) : d3w/dxdy2 at the integration point
Elements DKT3 and DST3:
ECR(1) : Von Mises on the lower face of the shellECR(2) : Von Mises on the upper face of the shell
ECR(3) : d2beta_x/dx2 at the first integration point
ECR(4) : d2beta_x/dy2 at the first integration point
ECR(5) : d2beta_x/dxdy at the first integration point
ECR(6) : d2beta_y/dx2 at the first integration point
ECR(7) : d2beta_y/dy2 at the first integration point
ECR(8) : d2beta_y/dxdy at the first integration point
Recall that the table of deformations EPST is composed by the
following parameters (computed at the integration point):
EPST(1) : du/dx (membrane deformation e_xx)EPST(2) : dv/dy (membrane deformation e_yy)
EPST(3) : du/dy+dv/dx (membrane deformation 2*e_xy)
EPST(4) : dbeta_x/dx (=d2w/dx2 if thin shell)
EPST(5) : dbeta_y/dy (=d2w/dy2 if thin shell)
EPST(6) : dbeta_y/dx + dbeta_x/dy
EPST(7) : 2*epsi_xz (eventually)
EPST(8) : 2*epsi_yz (eventually)
We assume a composite formed by 6 layers regularly spaced on a

This directive allows to define composite materials using

When the BACON option is used, EUROPLEXUS reads the numbers of the
associated elements directly from the BACON file: the
procedure /LECTURE/ is redundant.
For this material, the number of laminas is unlimited.
However, one should give the adequate numbers in the dimensioning
section of the input file: see the keywords MATE and ECRO
in the DIMENSIONS directive.
For the NBCOUCHE option, the various layers must be described
along increasing order of z. In particular,
zmax(couche_i) = zmin(couche_i+1).
The value z=0 corresponds to the neutral fiber of the element.
This material allows to account for excentricity.
This constitutive law computes the damages appearing in each
plie of the laminated structure. To this end, it is necessary
to define the damage parameters in each layer. In each ply,
the ECR table is dimensioned at 10, and the main parameters are:
DIMENSION ECR(10,NPLIS)ECR(2,ipli) : Von Mises of the ply
ECR(3,ipli) : Rupture criterion of the matrix in traction
ECR(4,ipli) : Rupture criterion of the matrix in compression
ECR(5,ipli) : Rupture criterion of the fiber, or fibermatrix delamination.

The directive is used to enter materials with an orthotropic (local)
behaviour into a coordinate system defined by the user, coupling with damage.
There is coupling between damage (as material LEM1) and orthotropy
(as material ORTS).
There are 6 damages : d_{1},d_{2},d_{3},d_{12},d_{13},d_{23}. Each damage
evolution rate is a function of strain tensor. A failure criterion is
implicitly contained within the model: rupture occurs when a damage exceeds a
critical value.
Two parameters (for each damage) allow to introduce a limitation of the
damage rate (thanks to the delayed damage effect) in order to avoid the mesh
dependency.

There is coupling between damage (as material LEM1) and orthotropy

There are 3 matrix damages : d_{1}^{m},d_{2}^{m},d_{3}^{m} (direction 1, 2 and 3), and 4 fiber
damages : d_{1}^{f},d_{2}^{f},d_{3}^{f},d_{4}^{f} (traction direction 1,
compression direction 1, traction direction 2, compression direction 2). Each damage
evolution rate is a function of strain tensor following the ONERA Damage
Mechanics law.
This material behaviour is intended for braided and woven composite materials.
The Onera damage model (ODM) is theorized in [897]. It’s implementation in Europlexus is studied in [898].

This directive allows to define the BOIS (wood) material,
that is used for example for packaging and transportation
as a shock absorber.
Only the compressive behaviour of the material is considered,
while the material response in traction is approximated as

This material model is taken from the thesis of P. François:
“Plasticité du bois en compression multiaxiale : Application
à l’absorption d’énergie mécanque”. Doctoral Thesis of the
Bordeaux I University (October 1992).
The associated coordinate system is defined by the option MORTHO
(see page C.96) for the continuum elements in 2D and 3D.
Verify that this material is available for your elements, by means
of the tables of page C.100.
Compression instability may be encountered after reconsolidation, since the
material becomes very stiff in the consolidated direction and is still very soft
in the other directions.
To overcome this problem, it may be considered that the orthotropy of the material
is lost when reconsolidation is achieved, since the microstructure has been
completely crushed and all the voids filled. This assumption is taken from the
observations made in the PhD Thesis of C. Adalian:
”The behaviour of wood under multiaxial dynamic compression  Use for the modelling of crashes of containers”,
PhD Thesis of Bordeaux I University (1998)
Such a behaviour is activated
using EDCV keyword. The floating value associated to this keyword defines
the level of deformation above which the process of convergence towards an
elastic isotropic material is started. It should be less than the reconsolidation
limit given in each orthotropy direction.
The convergence process is such that material characteristics of the element
converge continuously towards the isotropic consolidated values, whatever the first
direction is in which reconsolidation is achieved.
Isotropic elastic parameters of the consolidated materials are deduced from
elastic parameters given in the wood fibers direction. If this direction is not
the first orthotropy direction, it can be specified using "DIRF" keyword.
Isotropic consolidated parameters are then obtained by the formulae (assuming the fibers
direction is direction 1):
E_{c}=E_{1} . coe1 
ν_{c}= 

G_{c}= 

The different components of the ECR table are as follows, for the
continuum elements:

Attention: The description of the material is not showing all capabilities of the material. The material allows erosion and has several more input and output variables.
The directive is based on ORTS material law, with the possibility to define rate dependent
material properties. 9 material properties can be made rate dependent: E_{11}, E_{22},
E_{33}, ν_{12}, ν_{13}, ν_{23}, G_{12}, G_{13}, G_{23}. The rate dependency is
based on the following polynomial law:
X_{ij}(ε) = 
 X_{ij}^{k} (log(ε))^{k} (1) 
As for ORTS directive, stress and strain are expressed in the user coordinate system.

The associated coordinate system is defined by the directive "COMP"
(see GBC_0095 and GBC_0096):
The different components of the ECR table are as follows, for the
continuum elements:
ECR(1): pressure.ECR(2): Von Mises criterion.
ECR(16): v1  Strain rate in direction 1.

C.200
This directive enables the masses of the material points PMAT to be entered.
Optionally, the Young’s modulus E and the Poisson’s coefficient ν
of the material may also be specified. These are used in order to determine
the material’s bulk modulus
κ= 

when the PMAT associated with the MASS material has a (nodal) pinball attached to it. In this case, it is allowed to specify a zero mass (i.e. a 0 value for xm) in order to avoid adding an extra mass to the structure if so desired.
"MASS" xm < "YOUN" youn> < "NU" nu > /LECTURE/
If the node corresponding to the material point belongs also to another
element, the added mass (xm) may be zero. This is very useful in the
case of unilateral junctions or of added nodal pinballs for contact.
In this way, added masses may be entered too.
In axisymmetric, the real masses must be divided by 2π.
The different components of the ECR table are as follows:
ECR(1): integrated impulse from the originECR(2): sum of the instantaneous reaction forces.
C.210
This directive enables the elimination of elements in a mesh.
"FANT" rho /LECTURE/
The EUROPLEXUS program considers that all these elements do not exist.
However, the nodes are always present; as their masses may not
be zero, it is necessary to give (very low) densities
to "FANT" elements.
C.220
The directive enables the user to enter his own constitutive laws.
$ "STRU" ... $ $ "FLUI" ... $ "LIBR" $ "PMAT" ... $ < "PARA" a b c ... > /LECTURE/ $ "MECA" ... $ $ "CLIM" ... $
The distinction between structure and fluid is due to the
processing differences in A.L.E. In fact, there are transport terms
for the fluid, whereas the structure is always Lagrangian.
Similarly, the cases of material points, mechanisms and boundary
conditions are so peculiar that a dedicated syntax is provided.
These directives are described in detail on the following pages.
In the examples proposed in the following pages, there are some
calls to utility routines that are available within EUROPLEXUS:
If the quantity to be extracted is a vector (e.g. a velocity), the length of the extracted vector is in “LON”, and the array “VAL” must be dimensioned sufficiently (DIM(VAL) ≥ LON).
Argument “LOOP” allows to select the values to be extracted.
For a node :
LOOP = 0 : Coordinates of node “NUM”,LOOP = 1 : Displacements,
LOOP = 2 : Velocities,
LOOP = 5 : Nodal masses.
For an element :
LOOP = 21 : Stresses in element “NUM”,LOOP = 22 : Total deformations,
LOOP = 23 : Internal variables (ECR),
LOOP = 24 : Internal energy.
This directive introduces a userdefined constitutive behaviour
of structural type (“STRUCTURE”).
"LIBR" "STRU" num "RO" rho "YOUN" young "NU" nu ... ... < "PARA" /LECPARA/ > /LECTURE/
The number num enables several materials chosen by the user to
be recognized. The three parameters rho, young and nu
are compulsory.
The user specifies his material’s parameters after the keyword “PARAM”.
When EUROPLEXUS finds the keyword “LECTURE”, it considers that
the list of parameters is terminated, whatever the number
of values that have been read.
However, the total number of parameters for this material may not exceed
100, including the three mandatory values (rho, young and
nu).
If there are no additional parameters besides the three mandatory
ones, the keyword “PARAM” may be omitted.
The parameters are used within the subroutine “MSLIBR” that must be
written by the user, compiled and linked with the code libraries
to produce a special code executable before launching the run.
The elements that accept the free material of type “STRUCTURE” are
the following:
2D : TRIA, CAR1, CAR4.3D : CUBE, CUB6, CUB8, PRIS, PR6, TETR.
Be careful to respect the conventions chosen to rank the
tensor components according to the 2D plane, 2D axisymmetric or
3D cases. See page G.20 for further explanations.
The user can store for each element (and each integration point),
the values he wants (up to 10) in the ECR table. For
homogeneity with the other materials, the following data will
be stored in the first two locations of the ECR table :
ECR(1) = PressureECR(2) = Von Mises
The eight other locations are free.
The following example, taken from the standard benchmark "bm_str_2d_libr",
concerns the traction of an axisymmetric cylinder.
The material data are as follows:
MATERIAUX LIBRE STRUCTURE 901 RO 7800. YOUNG 210E9 NU 0. TOUS
In this particular case there is just one material, identified by the
usersupplied index 901.
There are no additional parameters besides the three mandatory ones,
and the Poisson coefficient is zero.
All the elements in the mesh possess this material (keyword “TOUS”).

This directive introduces a userdefined constitutive behaviour
of fluid type (“FLUIDE”).
"LIBR" "FLUI" num "RO" rho "PINI" pini "PREF" pref "EINT" ei ... ... < "PARA" /LECPARA/ > /LECTURE/
The number num enables several materials chosen by the user to
be recognized.
The four parameters rho, pini, pref
and ei are compulsory.
The user specifies his material’s parameters after the keyword “PARAM”.
When EUROPLEXUS finds the keyword “LECTURE”, it considers that
the list of parameters is terminated, whatever the number
of values that have been read.
However, the total number of parameters for this material may not exceed
100, including the four mandatory values (rho, pini,
pref and ei).
If there are no additional parameters besides the four mandatory
ones, the keyword “PARAM” may be omitted.
The parameters are used within the subroutine “MFLIBR” that must be
written by the user, compiled and linked with the code libraries
to produce a special code executable before launching the run.
The elements that accept the free material of type “FLUIDE” are
the following:
1D : TUBE, TUYA, CAVI.2D : TRIA, CAR1.
3D : CUBE, PRIS, TETR.
Be careful to respect the conventions chosen to rank the
tensor components according to the 2D plane, 2D axisymmetric or
3D cases. See page G.20 for further explanations.
The user can store for each element (and each integration point),
the values he wants (up to 10) in the ECR table. For
homogeneity with the other materials, the following data will
be stored in the first two locations of the ECR table :
ECR(1) = PressureECR(2) = Density.
The eight other locations are free.
The following example, taken from the standard benchmark
"bm_flu_1d_libr", concerns a shock tube with a perfect gas.
The material data are as follows:
MATERIAUX LIBRE FLUIDE 903 RO 13. PINI 1e6 PREF 1e5 EINT 192.3077e3 PARAM 1.4 640. LECT tub_1 TERM LIBRE FLUIDE 903 RO 1.3 PINI 1e5 PREF 1e5 EINT 192.3077e3 PARAM 1.4 640. LECT tub_2 TERM
In this case there are two materials, whose user index is the same (903),
but which have different initial conditions.
Note the value of the initial internal energy, which is mandatory
because the behaviour of the perfect gas depends both on the density
ρ and on the specific internal energy
e:
P = (γ − 1) ρ e 
These two variables ρ and e change during the transient,
as a function of mass and energy transfer among the neighbouring elements.
EUROPLEXUS computes these transfers automatically.
There are two additional parameters besides the four mandatory ones.
These are respectively the ratio of specific heats (γ),
and the apecific heat at constant volume (C_{v}), which allow to obtain
the temperature (θ).

This directive introduces a userdefined constitutive behaviour
of type material point (“POINT MATERIEL”).
"LIBR" "PMAT" num "MASS" m < "PARA" a b c ... > /LECTURE/
The number num enables several materials chosen by the user to
be recognized.
The single parameter “MASS” is mandatory.
The user specifies his material’s parameters after the keyword “PARAM”.
When EUROPLEXUS finds the keyword “LECTURE”, it considers that
the list of parameters is terminated, whatever the number
of values that have been read.
However, the total number of parameters for this material may not exceed
100, including the single mandatory value (m).
If there are no additional parameters besides the mandatory
one, the keyword “PARAM” may be omitted.
The parameters are used within the subroutine “MPLIBR” that must be
written by the user, compiled and linked with the code libraries
to produce a special code executable before launching the run.
The only element that accepts the free material of type “POINT MATERIEL” is
"PMAT", that is always 3D.
Be careful to respect the conventions chosen to rank the
tensor components according to the
3D cases. See page G.20 for further explanations.
The user can store for each element (and each integration point),
the values he wants (up to 10) in the ECR table.
The ten locations are free.
The following example, taken from the standard benchmark
"bm_str_terlun",
treats the case of two pointwise masses that attract each other
according to the universal gravitation law.
The material data are as follows:
MATERIAUX ! cte G nbr pt_lune LIBRE PMAT 101 MASS 1.00 PARAM 1.14e4 1 2 LECT terre TERM ! cte G nbr pt_terre LIBRE PMAT 101 MASS 0.0123 PARAM 1.14e4 1 2 LECT lune TERM ! param(1) = constante de gravitation ! param(2) = nbr de noeuds attires par cet element ! param(3) = liste des noeuds (ici un seul)
In this case there are two materials, whose user index is the same (101),
but which have different parameters.
Lines starting by a “!” are comments.
The used units are adapted to the treated problem. For masses,
the reference is the earth mass, for lengths the earth radius
and for times the day.
There are three additional parameters besides the mandatory one, that are
respectively the gravity constant, the number of nodes subjected to
gravity (here just one) and the index of the concerned node.

This directive introduces a userdefined constitutive behaviour
of mechanism type (“MECANISME”).
"LIBR" "MECA" num < "PARA" a b c ... > /LECTURE/
The number num enables several materials chosen by the user to
be recognized.
There are no mandatory parameters.
The user specifies his material’s parameters after the keyword “PARAM”.
When EUROPLEXUS finds the keyword “LECTURE”, it considers that
the list of parameters is terminated, whatever the number
of values that have been read.
However, the total number of parameters for this material may not exceed
100.
If there are no parameters
the keyword “PARAM” may be omitted.
The parameters are used within the subroutine “MMLIBR” that must be
written by the user, compiled and linked with the code libraries
to produce a special code executable before launching the run.
The only element that accepts the free material of type “MECANISME” is
"MECA", that is an element with two nodes and 6 degrees of freedom per node.
The main interest of this free material is to allow the user to
specify arbitrary relations (in matricial form) between the displacements
of the two nodes and the applied forces.
For example, it is possible to enter a symmetric stiffness matrix
in order to model a complicated support (78 values).
However, it must be noted that the relations must be specified in
(or converted to) the global reference frame, and that they stay
constant during the whole transient calculation.
The user can store for each element (and each integration point),
the values he wants (up to 10) in the ECR table.
The ten locations are free.
The following example, taken from the standard benchmark "bm_str_meca_lbr",
treats the very simple case of springs in translation and rotation.
The 78 values are specified in the global reference frame, and
the principal axex are parallel to the global ones.
The translational stiffness is K_{T} = 1E3, and the rotational one is
K_{R} = 4E6.
The free material has the userspecified index 905.

This directive introduces a userdefined constitutive behaviour
of the boundary condition type (“CONDITION AUX LIMITES"”).
"LIBR" "CLIM" num "PREF" pref < "PARA" a b c ... > /LECTURE/
The number num enables several materials chosen by the user to
be recognized.
The only mandatory parameter is pref.
The user specifies his material’s parameters after the keyword “PARAM”.
When EUROPLEXUS finds the keyword “LECTURE”, it considers that
the list of parameters is terminated, whatever the number
of values that have been read.
However, the total number of parameters for this material may not exceed
100, including the single mandatory value pref.
If there are no additional parameters besides the mandatory
one, the keyword “PARAM” may be omitted.
The parameters are used within the subroutine “CLIBRE” that must be
written by the user, compiled and linked with the code libraries
to produce a special code executable before launching the run.
The elements that accept the free material of type "CONDITION AUX LIMITES" are
"CL1D" and "CLTU", which are respectively an element with one node and one dof
and an element with one node and 7 dofs.
The main interest of this free material is to allow the user to
specify boundary conditions applied to the ‘fluid’ degree of freedom
of these elements, e.g. in order to model a special device mounted
along a pipeline.
In the case of "CLTU", only the 7th dof is affected.
The first 6 dofs concern the structure and are not affected.
The user can store for each element (and each integration point),
the values he wants (up to 10) in the ECR table.
For homogeneity with the other materials, the following data will
be stored in the first two locations of the ECR table :
ECR(1) = DP : variation of pressure due to the deviceECR(2) = Density of the donor element
The eight other locations are free.
The following example, taken from the standard benchmark
"bm_cir_conteneur_eau",
concerns the case of the brutal opening of a pressure container.
The container top is detached from the body and the opening (assumed
circumferential) grows as the top moves away.
The motion is parallel to the axis O_{x}.
As a consequence of the detachment, the crosssection of the diaphragm
across which the internal fluid passes is gradually increased, and the
corresponding pressure drop is modified accordingly, as a function
of the top distance.
The free material is identified by the index 906. Lines starting by a “!” are comments.
The material data are as follows:

C.240
This directive allows users to define their own constitutive
laws for the particle elements (BILLE).
"BILLE $ "LIBR" num "RO" rho $ ... < "FONC" numfon > ... < "PARA" a b c ... > /LECTURE/
The number (num) allows to distinguish between several
userdefined materials.
The rho parameter is mandatory.
The number (numfon) allows to identify the function used
for the interaction.
The complementary parameters introduced by "PARA" may be as
many as needed. EUROPLEXUS recognizes the end of the
parameters when the "LECTURE" keyword is encountered.
The subroutine "MBLIBR", to be written by the user,
computes the interaction forces between neighbouring particles
of the "BILLE" element considered, starting from the
quantities at the beginning of the step, which are known.
Consult the following example for a list of the available
variables.
The only element type accepting this material is "BILLE".
The user may store for each element the variables of his choice
within the ECR table (up tp 7 values). However, for uniformity with
the other materials, it is advised to use the first two slots
as follows:
Fluid : Continuum structure: ECR(1) = Pressure ECR(1) = Pressure ECR(2) = Density ECR(2) = Von Mises
Two new materials of the fluid type are defined: a material of
type acoustic fluid, and the other depending upon
the distance between two neighbouring particles.
The corresponding data will be, for example:

This option enables to choose the Von Mises material with
the implementation developed at Ispra. Elastoplasticity is
implemented via a radial return algorithm. Only isotropic
hardening is activated to date. There is no dependency on
temperature nor on strain rate.
"VM23" "RO" rho "YOUN" young "NU" nu "ELAS" sige ... <"FAIL" $[ VMIS ; PEPS ; PRES ; PEPR ]$ "LIMI" limit> "TRAC" npts*(sig eps) /LECTURE/
1/  The young parameter defines Young’s modulus during an elastic phase.
2/  The points (sig, eps) may have any position; however, concerning
the first point, there must be a compatibility between the coordinates,
Young’s modulus and the elastic limit.
3/  The slope of the yield curve may not increase from one segment
to the following one.
4/  When using a failure criterion based upon the principal strains
(PEPS or PEPR) be aware that the criterion is based upon
the cumulated strains. These are usually a good approximation
of the total strains for elements using a convected reference frame
for the stresses and strains (such as e.g. plate, shell or
bar elements). The approximation is likely to be very bad, instead,
for continuumlike elements, at least when there are large rotations.
The components of the ECR table are as follows:
ECR(1): current hydrostatic pressureECR(2): current equivalent stress (Von Mises)
ECR(3): current equivalent plastic strain
ECR(4): current yield stress
ECR(5): sound speed
ECR(6): failure flag (0=virgin Gauss Point, 1=failed Gauss Point)
Note that in order to postprocess the total strains (which
were formerly inappropriately stored in the ECR table for JRC materials)
one has to use the EPST table related to the element (like for CEA elements).
This is the material to be used for the interface elements
of type ED1D (see INT.80).
"VM1D" "PT1D" pt1d /LECTURE/
Note that when several ED1D elements are present in a coupled
1D/multiD calculation, then each ED1D element
must have a separate VM1D material, because the material is used
to carry the information of the associated 1D node to each
one ED1D element (pt1d).
The components of the ECR table are as follows :
ECR(1) : unusedECR(2) : unused
ECR(3) : unused
ECR(4) : unused
ECR(5) : unused
ECR(6) : unused
This is a viscoplastic material model mostly used to describe
the sensitivity of commonly used stainless steels (e.g. AISI 304
and 316) to the rate of loading. It uses the theory of viscoplasticity
based on total strain and overstress. To date, it is limited to
small strains.

1/  The young parameter defines Young’s modulus during an elastic phase.
2/  The points (sig, eps) may have any position; however, concerning
the first point, there must be a compatibility between the coordinates,
Young’s modulus and the elastic limit.
3/  The slope of the static yield curve may not increase from one
segment to the following one.
The components of the ECR table are as follows:
ECR(1): current hydrostatic pressureECR(2): current equivalent stress (Von Mises)
ECR(3): current equivalent plastic strain
ECR(4): current yield stress
ECR(5): xoverstress
ECR(6): yoverstress
ECR(7): xyoverstress
ECR(8): zoverstress
ECR(9): previous time
ECR(10): yzoverstress
ECR(11): xzoverstress
Let P represent the point of intersection (in the equivalent
stress  equivalent strain space) between the unloading path
and the equilibrium stressstrain curve.
ECR(12): total xstrain at point PECR(13): total ystrain at point P
ECR(14): total zstrain at point P
ECR(15): total xystrain at point P
ECR(16): total yzstrain at point P
ECR(17): total xzstrain at point P
ECR(18): equivalent total strain at point P
ECR(19): old equivalent total strain
ECR(20): EPSC (equivalent strain parameter)
EPSC is defined by the cyclic hardening law. It corresponds to
the distance between point P and the new origin in the strain
direction.
ECR(21): current cumulative value of number of crossings of the unloading path with the equilibrium stressstrain diagramECR(22): new xstress at point P
ECR(23): new ystress at point P
ECR(24): new xystress at point P
ECR(25): new zstress at point P
ECR(26): new yzstress at point P
ECR(27): new xzstress at point P
ECR(28): new equivalent stress at point P
ECR(29): old equivalent stress
ECR(30): old equilibrium equivalent stress
ECR(31): old (Young’s modulus * total strain)
ECR(32): sound speed
Note that in order to postprocess the total strains (which
were formerly inappropriately stored in the ECR table for JRC materials)
one has to use the EPST table related to the element (like for CEA elements).
This directive enables to choose an elastoplastic constitutive
theory with Von Mises yield surface, associative flow rule,
and isotropic hardening or softening, including a viscoplastic
regularization.
Elastoplasticity is implemented via a radial return algorithm.
For more information about the theory, please refer to:
J.C. Simo, J.G. Kennedy and S. Govindjee, "NonSmooth
Multisurface Plasticity and Viscoplasticity. Loading/Unloading

"VMSF" "RO" rho "YOUN" young "NU" nu "ELAS" sige "ETA" eta ... "TRAC" npts*(sig eps) /LECTURE/
1/  The young parameter defines Young’s modulus during an elastic phase.
2/  The points (sig,eps) may have any position; however, concerning
the first point, there must be a compatibility between the coordinates,
Young’s modulus and the elastic limit.
3/  The slope of the yield curve may become negative in the
softening part of the curve.
The components of the ECR table are as follows:
ECR(1): current hydrostatic pressureECR(2): current equivalent stress (Von Mises)
ECR(3): current equivalent plastic strain
ECR(4): current yield stress
ECR(5): xstress before viscoplastic correction
ECR(6): ystress before viscoplastic correction
ECR(7): xystress before viscoplastic correction
ECR(8): zstress before viscoplastic correction
ECR(9): yzstress before viscoplastic correction (3D only)
ECR(10): xzstress before viscoplastic correction (3D only)
ECR(11): current time
ECR(12): sound speed
Note that in order to postprocess the total strains (which
were formerly inappropriately stored in the ECR table for JRC materials)
one has to use the EPST table related to the element (like for CEA elements).
This directive enables to choose an elastoplastic constitutive theory with Drucker Prager yield surface, associative or nonassociative flow rule, including hardening or softening, and a viscoplastic regularization.
This material is part of the models developed by the CESI team
(formerly at ENEL, Milano) in collaboration with JRC.
The regularization technique is the same as the one implemented
in the VMSF material, see:
J.C. Simo, J.G. Kennedy and S. Govindjee, "NonSmooth
Multisurface Plasticity and Viscoplasticity. Loading/Unloading
Conditions and Numerical Algorithms", Int. J. Num. Meth. Eng.,
Vol 26, pp. 21612185 (1988).
The model uses two parameters, alfa and c, related to
the angle and the cohesion parameters of the classical
Drucker Prager model. These two parameters are not constant
in general, but depend on the plastic strain. Hardening and/or

When using a failure criterion based upon the principal strains
(PEPS or PEPR) be aware that the criterion is based upon
the cumulated strains. These are usually a good approximation
of the total strains for elements using a convected reference frame
for the stresses and strains (such as e.g. plate, shell or
bar elements). The approximation is likely to be very bad, instead,
for continuumlike elements, at least when there are large rotations.
The parameter ETA can be effectively used to obtain a mesh size independence
in case of static or quasistatic calculations.
The parameter is very sensitive in case of dynamic simulations and must be set with care.
It is recommended to set this parameter to 0 in case of fast dynamic simulations.

were formerly inappropriately stored in the ECR table for JRC materials)
one has to use the EPST table related to the element (like for CEA elements).
The option is used to enter materials with a linear orthotropic
behaviour into a coordinate system defined by the user.
The model is suitable to represent e.g. composite materials.

The associated orthotropy directions are to be specified
via the COMP ORTS directive

The directive is used to enter materials with a modified Camclay behaviour. The model is suitable to represent e.g. cohesive soil materials.
Although the model includes some treatment of the water possibly
present in soils, the use of this feature is strongly discouraged
because the modeling appears somewhat inconsistent in that case:
for example, water motion within the soil is not treated,
water pressure is not taken into account to compute internal
forces, and finally the calculation of masses seems inconsistent.
To model a dry soil, just leave out the keyword ROW: then
the code assumes ρ_{w}=0, the value given for ρ
is the density of the (dry) soil alone, and the value
given for z_{f}, if any, is irrelevant.

This option may be repeated as many times as necessary.
This material model seems unable to start from initial stressfree conditions,
so that insitu (initial) stresses should always be specified.
The initial insitu conditions (stresses and some of the ECR components)
for elements using this material are computed by using the
parameters (zf, slev, grav) or pres.
One and only one of these two sets must be given. In the following
discussion, the term “vertical” refers to the ycoordinate
in 2D, to the zcoordinate in 3D calculations.
A) If pres (p) is specified, then the initial state is uniform hydrostatic stress (−p) all over the current CAMC material. This is typical, e.g., of simple oneelement tests to check the behaviour of the constitutive law, or of simple laboratory experiments.
In this case, the code simply sets:
σ_{1}=−p , σ_{2}=−p , σ_{3}=−p. 
B) If (zf, slev, grav) are specified, then the initial conditions are computed as follows. The model assumes a horizontally stratified (homogeneous) soil, the lower part of which may contain water. The quantities z_{f} and s_{lev} are the vertical coordinates of the upper water and soil levels, respectively. Normally it should be s_{lev}>z_{f} so that the soil layer between z_{f} and s_{lev} is dry (no water) while the soil below that level is saturated by water.
For each element with the current CAMC material, the code computes the vertical coordinate of its centroid z_{c}. Then the vertical stress due to the soil weight (effective stress) is:
σ_{v} = −g(ρ−ρ_{w})(s_{lev}−z_{c}), 
where ρ is the density of the wet soil (soil plus water), ρ_{w} is the density of the water. Thus, the difference between the two is the density of the (dry) soil. The vertical stress may not be positive:
σ_{v}=MIN(σ_{v},0). 
The horizontal stress is given by:
σ_{h}=K_{0}σ_{v}, 
where K_{0} is the k0 parameter specified above. Then, the code sets:
σ_{1}=σ_{h} , σ_{2}=σ_{h} , σ_{3}=σ_{v}. 
In addition to soil (effective) stresses, the water pressure (hydrostatic) is also evaluated:
p_{w} = −gρ_{w}(z_{f}−z_{c}). 
The water pressure may not be positive:
p_{w}=MIN(p_{w},0). 
This quantity is stored in ECR(7). Note, however, that the water pressure does not contribute to internal forces in the CAMC model: only the effective (soil) stresses are used.
Note also that if (zf, slev, grav) are specified one should also probably specify a “global” gravity term (equal to the value of g given above) by means e.g. of the CHAR CONS GRAV directive, in order to have (at least approximate) equilibrium in the initial configuration. In addition, suitable boundary conditions must also be prescribed along the envelope of the CAMC soil region.
The different components of the ECR table are as follows:
ECR(1) : current hydrostatic pressure 1/3 tr (σ)ECR(2) : square root of the second invariant of the deviatoric stress tensor J_{2}′ (i.e. square root of Von Mises equivalent stress)
ECR(3) : current void ratio
ECR(4) : hardening parameter P_{c} (isotropic consolidation pressure)
ECR(5): sound speed
ECR(6): water overpressure (u)
ECR(7): initial water pressure (p_{0}), p = p_{0} + u (p is the total water pressure)
ECR(8): volumetric strain (є_{V} = є_{x} + є_{y} + є_{z})
ECR(9): deviatoric strain
є_{d} = √2/3[(є_{x}−є_{y})^{2}+ (є_{y}−є_{z})^{2}+ (є_{y}−є_{z})^{2}]+ (γ_{xy}^{2} + γ_{yz}^{2} + γ_{xz}^{2})
The components of the stress tensor are as follows:

SIG(3): σ_{z}
SIG(4): τ_{xy}
SIG(5): τ_{yz} (only 3D)
SIG(6): τ_{xz} (only 3D)
Let M_{1} be the ratio between the second invariant of the stress tensor J_{2} and the first invariant of the stress tensor J_{1} at critical state (i.e. for stress points which lie on the failure surface). This is the quantity which is usually available from tests.
Let M_{2} be the ratio between the second invariant of
the deviatoric stress tensor J_{2}′ and the first invariant of the
stress tensor J_{1} at critical state.
The M parameter defined above in the input syntax corresponds
to M_{1}.
However, note that in the model description of the CAMC material the
quantity g(θ) corresponds rather to M_{2}.
The following relation holds between the two quantities:
M_{2} = M_{1} / √3.
Note that in order to postprocess the total strains (which
were formerly inappropriately stored in the ECR table for JRC materials)
one has to use the EPST table related to the element (like for CEA elements)
The option is used to enter materials with a modified Camclay behaviour. The model is suitable to represent e.g. (dry) soil materials. The main differences with respect to the CAMC material are that:
Like for the CAMC material, the user may choose between a calculation with constant shear modulus and one with constant Poisson’s coefficient.

In the JohnsonCook model Elastoplasticity is
implemented via a radial return algorithm. Only isotropic
hardening is activated to date and strainrate dependency is
included in the model. However, no temperature effects are
included in the present implementation.
The implementation of this material model is described in reference [167].
The JohnsonCook constitutive relation is given by:
σ_{eq} =  ⎡ ⎣  A_{1} + A_{2}  ⎛ ⎝  ε_{eq}^{p}  ⎞ ⎠  ^{λ2}  ⎤ ⎦  ⎡ ⎢ ⎢ ⎣  1 + λ_{1} ln  ⎛ ⎜ ⎜ ⎝ 
 ⎞ ⎟ ⎟ ⎠  ⎤ ⎥ ⎥ ⎦  ⎛ ⎝  1 − θ^{m}  ⎞ ⎠  (2) 
where:
The JohnsonCook model is a simple empirical generalization of
Ludwik’s constitutive law (see VMLU on page C.253), represented by
the first term of the above equation, trying to
account for strainrate effects (included in the
second term of the equation) and for temperature effects (third and last term).
The “reference” strain rate is the minimum plastic strain rate for which
calibration of the model has been made.
In JohnsonCook’s model the Ludwik’s law (first term) is multiplied by
a function of the equivalent plastic strain rate. The form of this function is
related to the often made experimental observation that the increase
in flow stress is a logarithmic function of the strain rate.
The reference (or minimum) equivalent plastic strain rate
ε_{eq,ref}^{p}
is the value of equivalent plastic strain rate under which the material
behaves in a “static” (i.e., strainrate independent) way. In practice,
in the code, when the equivalent plastic strain rate is below this value,
only the static part of the model is considered. The parameters
equivalent plastic strain rate and λ_{1} are interconnected.

This directive enables to specify a DruckerPrager material.
The material behaves in a linear elastic way until
failure is reached, and thereafter it behaves like a fluid
(i.e. it resists only to compression).
Failure occurs when the stress point in
the J_{1}√J_{2}′ space reaches the failure line (a straight line)
of equation:
√ 
 =K−α J_{1} 
where J_{1}=σ_{x}+σ_{y}+σ_{z} is the first invariant of the stress tensor and J_{2}′ is the second invariant of the deviatoric stress tensor:
J_{2}′= 
 (σ_{x}^{2} + σ_{y}^{2} + σ_{z}^{2} −σ_{x} σ_{y} −σ_{x} σ_{z} −σ_{y} σ_{z}) + τ_{xy}^{2} + τ_{xz}^{2} + τ_{yz}^{2} 
The constant K is the intersection of the failure line with the vertical axis and represents the failure stress of the material in pure shear (e.g. in torsion): it is also called cohesion.
The constant α is the slope of the failure line (tangent of the angle) and is also called the internal friction angle.
After failure is reached, the material behaves like a liquid: all tangential stresses are set to zero and the normal stresses are set to equal (hydrostatic) values if the material is under compression (negative volumetric strain), or to zero if the material is under traction (positive volumetric strain).
Due to its postulated afterfailure behaviour, this material is not “erodable”. That is, when failure is reached, even at all Gauss points of an element, the element is not removed from the calculation because it contributes to the solution with its postfailure (hydrostatic) behaviour. Of course, this only makes sense as long as the failed material remains confined (so that a hydrostatic pressure can build up in it).
The material model is described in reference [13]. Note that although the material model had been originally denoted as a MohrCoulomb model, in reality it is a DruckerPrager material. In fact, the yield surface corresponding to the expression given above (using J_{2}′) is a cone with circular cross section (and not with hexagonal crosssection) in principle stress space.

The parameter e_{D} is taken from the recent foam density ρ_{f} and the density of the pure material ρ_{f0} by using this equation

All the limit plastic moments must be defined carefully. When they are
declared as functions (using "FONC"), the domain defined
as plaslim1plaslim2 > 0 must be a close convex domain: note
particularly that the program tries to find two intersections of
plaslim1 and plaslim2.
When the limit plastic functions are not defined as polynomial (e.g. when "LSQU" is not used), the program requires prolongation of the functions: it is necessary to compute the elastic predictor which can be located outside the close convex elastic domain.
The first and second derivative of the limit plastic functions can be surely computed from the original limit plastic functions (i.e. without using the functions associated with the "D1", "D2", "DD1" and "DD2" directives) when these limit plastic functions are polynomials (see "LSQU" 9.1 to use table functions as polynomials).
After (and never before) the definition of the material characteristics ("MATE" directive), the orthotropy characteristics of the elements are mandatory. The syntax is:
"COMP" "ORTS" vx vy vz /LECTURE/
See the "ORTS" directive for more details.

This subdirective enables materials with an hyperelastic
behaviour to be used. Only two types of shell (Q4GS et DST3) and several
solid elements (CUBE, TETR, etc.) can be used with this material.
The following kinds of hyperelastic materials can be selected:
Note that a BlatzKo hyperelastic material model is also available, see the new BLKO material on page C.299.
For Type 1, the expression of the strain energy density corresponds to:
W = c1*(I13) + c2*(I23) + c3*(I13)**2 + c4*(I13)(I23) + c5*(I23)**2 + c6*(I13)**3 + c7*(I23)*(I13)**2 + c8*(I13)(I23)**2 + c9(I23)**3 + c10*(I13)**4 + c11*(I23)**2*(I13)**3 + c12*(I13)**2(I23) + c13*(I13)(I23) + K*(Log(I3))**2
For Type 2, the expression of the strain energy density corresponds to :
W = A  ∫  C(I_{1}−3)^{2} dI_{1} + 3 B· log(I_{2}) + K· log(I_{3})^{2} (5) 
Type 3, the Ogden material can be expressed with the following equation
W = 

 ⎛ ⎝  λ_{1}^{αp} + λ_{2}^{αp} + λ_{3}^{αp} −3  ⎞ ⎠  (6) 
with the principal stretch λ.
Type 4, the Ogden material (new formulation) can be expressed with the following equation
W = 

 ⎛ ⎝  λ_{1}^{*αp} + λ_{2}^{*αp} + λ_{3}^{*αp} −3  ⎞ ⎠  + K(J−1−lnJ) (7) 
with λ^{*}=λ J^{−1/3}. K is the bulk modulus, µ_{p} and α_{p} are the material parameters used for this expression.
Type 5, the OgdenStorakers material can be expressed with the following equation
W = 

 ⎛ ⎝  λ_{1}^{αp} + λ_{2}^{αp} + λ_{3}^{αp} −3  ⎞ ⎠  + 

 (J^{−αpβp}−1) (8) 
µ_{p}, α_{p} and β_{p} are the material parameters used for this expression.
The input parameters can be determined by the code if an experimental stressstrain curve is given, see the description below under Case parameters identification. A bestfit is done in this case in order to calculate them. The data must be provided in engineering strains from an 1D experiment. The lateral deflection should not be limited by the experiment.
The Ogden formulation of Type 3 is not yet tested in detail. First tests show a shrinkage of the material under initially unloaded conditions. This is physically not possible. It is strongly recommended not to use this material type.
The material law uses total strains. These strains are sometimes not correct when large rotations occur.

The type and the number of elements is irrelevant since only the material is called. (However, note that at least one element must be defined in order to run the code.) Four different models are possible: for the MooneyRivlin material a twoparameter model is included (CO1 and CO2); for the Ogden material a sixparameter model is included neglecting the influence of the D parameter and for the Ogden New model a six parameter model is included.
Note that as soon as the code encounters the TRAC keyword in the above syntax it reads the traction curve, then performs the parameters calibration and stops. Therefore, any parameters given after the TRAC subdirective are simply ignored. This means that if values should be set for the optional keywors BULK or NU, they must be entered before and not after the TRAC subdirective, as indicated in the syntax above.
For this reason, the usual /LECT/ at the end of the material directive is not included in the syntax (since it would not be interpreted anyway).
Note that the range of validity of the hyperelastic material models is as follows:
The components of the ECR table are as follows:
ECR(1): PressureECR(2): Von Mises Stress
ECR(3): Normal transverse strain (shell elements) or tangential stiffness (solid elements)

This directive allows to choose the material applied to interface elements.
Thus, it can only be used with interface elements INT4 (2D quadrilateral),
INT6 (3D triangular prism) and INT8 (3D hexahedron).
The combination of such elements and material MINT forms a cohesive zone
model, suitable to solve problems like delamination and debonding.
Only TYPE 2 material is functional.
Three damage laws could be chosen with material TYPE 2: exponential,
linear or Cachan interface mesomodel.

This directive allows to chose a composite material made by a RTM process.
The behavior is orthotropic and the 9 independant coefficents can defined by using
abaques of 3 or 4 parameters.
These parameters are the volumic fraction, the angle between warp and weft directions and
the warp and weft ratio. The 4th parameter is the temperature which can be optionnal.

1/  It is possible to suppress the temperature dependant. In this case,
one can use 3 parameters (from 1 to 3).
2/  By defining ptem, prct, pang and pvf, it is possible to declare
that temperature is parameter 1, volumic fraction is parameter 2 and
any combination the user likes.
It permits to use as general as possible an abaque of 4 parameters.
3/  The values of angle, volumic fraction and ration between warp and weft
have to be define by using the directive RTMANG, RTMVF and RTMRCT (page C63).

When using a failure criterion based upon the principal strains
(PEPS or PEPR) be aware that the criterion is based upon
the cumulated strains. These are usually a good approximation
of the total strains for elements using a convected reference frame
for the stresses and strains (such as e.g. plate, shell or
bar elements). The approximation is likely to be very bad, instead,
for continuumlike elements, at least when there are large rotations.
The components of the ECR table are as follows:
ECR(1): current hydrostatic pressureECR(2): current equivalent stress (Von Mises)
ECR(3) Area under the (principal stress to the power of CORR)time curve, the stress is dived by 1.E6 to avoid too big numbers.

This material law prescribes properties of the reinforced concrete for
structures modeled with the discrete element method (DEM) via ELDI
elements.
Usually, both steel and concrete phases are present. Nevertheless, they
may be used separately, i.e. it is possible to use only one material phase,
either concrete or steel.
This model was first developed in J.Rousseau’s PhD thesis then reviewed and further developed in A.Masurel’s PhD thesis, with EDF financial support and collaboration with 3SR Laboratory (Grenoble). For theoretical description of the laws see [873], [886].

If only concrete is modeled through the discrete element formulation, the
sequence open by BETON keyword should be used only. In this case, reinforcement
is modeled by the beam finite element model and steelconcrete links are
defined by ACBE link model.
If both the concrete and the reinforcement are modeled by discrete elements, theer properties must be defined separately (keywords BETON and ACIER respectively), and it is necessary to define also a specific behavior for the steelconcrete interface. This can be done by using a sequence of parametres introduced by the BIMA option. This option should be used only once, either with BETON or ACIER definition. If the sequence BIMA is not specified, the steelconcrete interface behaves as a concrete without taking into account the main direction of the reinforcement.
Don’t forget to use directive ARMA in CELDI to declare the steel discrete elements. ARMA calculates the main direction of the reinforcement needed to define normal and tangential forces for the BIMA links.
In the discrete element calculation BL3S material is used for the links.
However, for postprocessing purpose the number of active links and the degree
of damage are reported onto the discrete elements.
The components of the ECR table are as follows:
ECR(1): number of COHEtype links per element at t=t_{0}
ECR(2): number of BIMAtype links per element at t=t_{0}
ECR(3): number of COHEtype links per element at t ≥ t_{0}
ECR(4): number of BIMAtype links per element at t ≥ t_{0}

This option enables to choose a material that considers
laminated security glass. A linear elastic material is

When using a failure criterion based upon the principal strains
(PEPS or PEPR) be aware that the criterion is based upon
the cumulated strains. These are usually a good approximation
of the total strains for elements using a convected reference frame
for the stresses and strains (such as e.g. plate, shell or
bar elements). The approximation is likely to be very bad, instead,
for continuumlike elements, at least when there are large rotations.
The material should only be used with shell elements. The third component of the stresses and strains is neglected in the calculation of the failure criterion.
The components of the ECR table are as follows:
ECR(1): current hydrostatic pressureECR(2): current equivalent stress (Von Mises)
ECR(3) Area under the (principal stress to the power of CORR)time curve, the stress is dived by 1.E6 to avoid too big numbers.

Note that in order to postprocess the total strains (which
were formerly inappropriately stored in the ECR table for JRC materials)
one has to use the EPST table related to the element (like for CEA elements).

This directive allows to describe the behaviour of an elastoplastic material that may undego some damage, according to the Lemaitre model. There is coupling between damage and plasticity, represented by the JohnsonCook model. The damage evolution rate is a function of the triaxiality ratio of stresses and of the equivalent plastic strain rate. A failure criterion is impicitly contained within the model: rupture occurs when the damage exceeds a critical value. Two optional parameters allow to introduce a limitation of the damage rate (thanks to the delayed damage model) in order to avoid the mesh dependency.

When the “erosion” algorithm is activated (see page A.30, Section 4.4, keyword FAIL), an element is considered as failed if damage >= dc.

This directive allows to define a Von Mises elastothermoviscoplastic material with nonlinear isotropic hardening governed by a modified JohnsonCook model with explicit elastic predictor and return mapping algorithm, a Voce saturation type of hardening and a CockcroftLatham failure criterion. See report [372] for full details. It can be used in 3D, 2D plane strain, 2D plane stress or 2D axisymmetric cases. This material model was developed at NTNU (Trondheim, Norway).
The original JohnsonCook model was first introduced in: G. R. Johnson
and W. H. Cook. A constitutive Model and Data for Metals Subjected to
Large Strains, High Strain Rates and High Temperatures. Proceedings of
the 7th International Symposium on Ballistics, Hague (1983), 541–547.
The socalled “modified” Johnson Cook material law,
in which the strainrate sensitivity
term is adjusted so as to avoid nonphysical softening, was introduced
in: M. Ortiz and G. T. Camacho. Adaptive Lagrangian modelling of ballistic
penetration metallic targets. Computer Methods in Applied
Mechanics and Engineering 142 (1997), 269–301.

for impact and penetration. Eur. J. Mech. A/Solids 20 (2001), 685712.
The Voce saturation type of hardening was proposed in: E. Voce.
The relationship between stress and strain for homogeneous deformation.
Journal of the Institute for Metals 74 (1948), 536–562.
The expression of the constitutive law is the following:
σ_{y} =  ⎡ ⎣  A + Q_{1}  ⎛ ⎝  1 − e^{−C1 p}  ⎞ ⎠  + Q_{2}  ⎛ ⎝  1 − e^{−C2 p}  ⎞ ⎠  ⎤ ⎦  ⎛ ⎝  1 + ṗ^{*}  ⎞ ⎠  ^{C}  ⎛ ⎝  1 − T^{*m}  ⎞ ⎠  (9) 
and is the product of three factors (from left to right): a strain hardening term (in square brackets), a strainrate hardening term and a temperature softening term. The symbols indicate the following:
The last term of the above equation accounts for the thermal softening of the yield stress at elevated temperatures. However, the evolution of the temperature remains to be established. The heat transfer is modelled by assuming adiabatic conditions. This implies that there is no heat transfer into or out of the system during plastic straining. The plastic energy dissipation D_{p} per unit volume in the form of heat (Watt per cubic meter) is given by:
D_{p} = χσ_{eq}ṗ=ρ C_{T}Ṫ (10) 
where:
From the above expression, the temperature rate Ṫ is obtained:
Ṫ = 
 = 
 (11) 
and then this value is integrated in time at each Gauss point to obtain the current temperature at the point. The initial temperature is set to the room temperature T_{r} at each Gauss point. If during the calculation the temperature at a Gauss point reaches the melting temperature T_{m}, the Gauss point fails.
The CockcroftLatham fracture criterion based on plastic work per unit volume is assumed. See: M. G. Cockcroft and D. J. Latham. Ductility and the workability of metals. Journal of the Institute of Metals 96 (1968), 33–39.
Material failure takes place at a Gauss point when a damage parameter D reaches the damage threshold D_{c}. The D_{c} parameter should be set by the user (see DC keyword below) such that 0<D_{c}≤ 1. The value 1 should be used when not considering damage softening. The damage is computed according to the following expression:
D = 
 = 
 ∫ 
 ⟨σ_{1}⟩ dp (12) 
where:
An element’s Gauss point is considered as failed if D≥ D_{c}, i.e. if the damage reaches the chosen threshold. If the “erosion” algorithm is activated (see GBA_0030, keyword EROS), an element is eroded as soon as a chosen fraction (see ldam parameter of the EROS keyword) of its Gauss points reach failure.

This directive allows to define a rigid material to be associated with a rigid body. The geometrical characteristics of a rigid body are defined by using the COMP RIGI directive, see Page C.99B.

All elements listed in the /LECT/ directive must belong to a rigid body declared in the COMP RIGI directive as described on Page C.99B.
The values of the density ρ is ignored by the code if the total mass, the center of gravity or the inertia tensor of the rigid body are prescribed by the user, see Page C.99B (RIGI directive) for details. However, even in this case a value for ρ must be specified in the present RIGI material for input completeness.

This subdirective defines a hyperelastic material of the MooneyRivlin type.
An incompressible MooneyRivlin hyperelastic material is described by:
W = C_{1}( 
 _{1}−3)+C_{2}( 
 _{2}−3) (13) 
where W is the strain energy density function, C_{1} and C_{2} are empirically determined material constants and:
 _{1}=J^{−2/3}I_{1} I_{1}=λ_{1}^{2}+λ_{2}^{2}+λ_{3}^{2} (14) 
 _{2}=J^{−4/3}I_{2} I_{2}=λ_{1}^{2}λ_{2}^{2}+λ_{2}^{2}λ_{3}^{2}+λ_{3}^{2}λ_{1}^{2} (15) 
I_{3}=J^{2}=λ_{1}^{2}λ_{2}^{2}λ_{3}^{2} (16) 
Here I_{1} and I_{2} are the first and second invariants of the unimodular component of the left CauchyGreen deformation tensor and:
J=det 
 =λ_{1}λ_{2}λ_{3} (17) 
with F the deformation gradient. For an incompressible material J=1.
For a compressible MooneyRivlin material eq. (13) becomes:
W = C_{1}( 
 _{1}−3)+C_{2}( 
 _{2}−3)+K(lnI_{3})^{2} (18) 
with K the bulk modulus and I_{3} is the third invariant, given by eq. (16).
The material parameters C_{1} and C_{2} can be determined by EPX itself by a best fit procedure if a 1D experimental stressstrain curve is available (see Parameters Calibration mode below).
The range of validity of this material model is as follows:
Two input syntaxes are available. The first one is for the normal use of the material model, while the second one (introduced by the special keyword PCAL, for Parameters CALibration) is used to identify the material parameters.

This mode is activated by the presence of the PCAL keyword immediately following the MOON keyword in the input data, as mentioned above. A best fit is performed in order to calculate the parameters. The traction curve data must be provided in engineering terms from a purely 1D experiment (that is, lateral strains should not be restrained in the experiment.)
In this mode, the type and the number of elements is irrelevant since the material routine is called directly from the material reading procedure. Then the code computes the best fit and stops immediately. (However, note that at least one element must be defined in order to keep EPX happy.)
For this reason, the usual /LECT/ at the end of the material directive is not included in this second syntax (since it would not be interpreted anyway.)

This subdirective defines a hyperelastic material of the Ogden type.
The expression of the strain energy density is one of the
following expressions:
Type 1 W = 

 ⎛ ⎝  λ_{1}^{*αp} + λ_{2}^{*αp} + λ_{3}^{*αp} −3  ⎞ ⎠  + K(J−1−lnJ) (19) 
Type 2 W = 

 ⎛ ⎝  λ_{1}^{*αp} + λ_{2}^{*αp} + λ_{3}^{*αp} −3  ⎞ ⎠  + 
 K (J−1)^{2} (20) 
where λ^{*}=λ J^{−1/3}, K is the bulk modulus, µ_{p} and α_{p} are material parameters. The present implementation can go up to 4 terms (N=4) plus the volumetric one if K≠ 0 in the expression of the potential W. At least the first term (α_{1}, µ_{1}) must be defined. The first form eq. (19) is the classical one, the second form eq. (20) is the one found in some codes, e.g. Abaqus.
The material parameters α_{p} and µ_{p} can be determined by EPX itself by a best fit procedure if a 1D experimental stressstrain curve is available (see Parameters Calibration mode below).

These materials are detailed in the following pages.
All pressures given as parameters are absolute pressures that
must account for the external pressure. If one wants to avoid
an unwanted transient expansion, it is necessary to specify the
reference pressure "PREF", which must be the same for all
fluid materials in a calculation.
For example, for a reservoir filled with gas at the relative
pressure of 10 MPa (Pint  Pext = 10 MPa), it is necessary
to specify an internal pressure of 10.1 MPa if the atmospheric
pressure is 0.1 MPa. Then, two cases are possible:
1) The reservoir is initially in equilibrium:
The calculation aims at simulating the response of the reservoir to an overpressure which appears later on (shock, explosion, imposed velocity ...). The reference pressure must then be: pref = 10.1 MPa, so that the reservoir remains initially in equilibrium.
2) The reservoir is not initially in equilibrium:
The calculation aims at simulating the response of the reservoir to an an internal pressure which appears abruptly. The reference pressure must then be: pref = 0.1 MPa, so that the final status be correct.
C.301
Perfect gas (P=ρ(γ−1)E_{internal})
This option enables materials with a ideal gas
behaviour to be used. It is an interface to convert the
input to the appropriate material (GAZP 7.8.4, FLUT 7.8.30) for the elements used.

The output variables are according to the material in which the generic material is converted.
C.305
This option enables a fluid (liquidlike) behaviour for continuum elements to be input. The fluid (isothermal) can be perfect (no viscosity) or viscous.
The expression used to compute the absolute pressure p in the fluid is:
p = p_{ini} + (ρ − ρ_{ini})c^{2} 
where p_{ini} is the fluid pressure in the initial state, ρ is the current density, ρ_{ini} is the initial density and c is the sound speed, which is considered constant.
By default the fluid is considered “free” (i.e. fluid alone,
keyword LIBR).
However, it is also possible to take into account the volume occupied by
some fixed internal structures (which are not meshed) by specifying
the optional keyword POREUX
.
Such a “porosity” may be specified either in 2D or in 3D, but only for
the elements of type CAR1, CUBE and PRIS.

ρ_{min} = ρ_{ini} + 

The parameters RO
and C
are compulsory.
When the reference pressure is different from the initial one, the fluid is not in equilibrium at the beginning. This is the case e.g. when a membrane is breaking at t=0, releasing a compressed fluid. For further detail, see page C.300.
In various problems, studies relate to acoustic effects; since
it is supposed that a fluid in equilibrium evolves under the effects
of loading (motion of a piston, shock,...), in this case it must be:
p_{ref} = p_{ini}.
If PREF is omitted, EUROPLEXUS considers that the fluid is in
equilibrium and p_{ref}=p_{ini} (even when p_{ini}=0).
For a given minimum pressure p_{min}, the fluid pressure is always
greater than or equal to that value, even if the density is
decreasing. This is a very simple way to model cavitation.
The default value of p_{min} is p_{min} = 0.
In the presence of viscosity, the tensor of stresses in the fluid has the following form:
σ(i,j)=−P δ(i,j) +2 µ є(i,j) 
with:
P : pressureδ(i,j) : Kronecker’s symbol
є(i,j) : strain rate (derived from є(i,j))
For water at 20 degrees Celsius: µ = 0.001 SI units (Kg/(m*s)).
If the fluid is porous, the parameter PORO
is mandatory.
In this case an equivalent fluid is used by the code for the calculations,
which occupies the entire volume of the element.
However, the used variables (pressure, velocity, etc.) are those
of the REAL fluid, so as to obtain directly the physical state
of the fluid in the presence of internal structures.
If these internal structures generate a head loss, the parameter
kp
allows to model it in case this loss is isotropic.
Otherwise, the parameters kpx, kpy, kpz
allow to distinguish
between the three directions in the global reference.
The former coefficients are given per unit length.
For example, if the head loss is Δ P=0.25 bar over a
length of L=2 m, for a fluid of density ρ=1000
kgm^{−3} with a velocity V=5 ms^{−1},
the coefficient will be K_{p}=1 according to the formula:
Δ P = 
 K_{p} L ρ V^{2} 
The parameter SMOU
(relative wet surface) is obsolete
and may be omitted. It is only kept for compatibility
with old input files.
This material model can be compared to that of a fluid with constant bulk modulus (e.g. the FLUT material with NUM 9) as follows. For the latter, the absolute pressure is given by:
p = p_{ini} + Bη 
where B is the bulk modulus (assumed constant and usually expressed in Pa) and η is the relative volume variation:
η = −є_{V} = 
 = 1 − 

From these expressions one obtains:
p = p_{ini} + (ρ − ρ_{ini}) 

By comparing this with the pressure expression of the FLUI material, one sees that:
c = 


Therefore, strictly speaking the two models are different because in one the sound speed is assumed constant (so that the bulk modulus varies with the density) while in the other the bulk modulus is assumed constant (so that the sound speed varies with the density). However, by assuming that the density varies only slightly from the initial value ρ_{ini}, one obtains the following relation between c and B:
c ≈ 


The components of the ECR table are as follows:
ECR(1): absolute pressureECR(2): density

C.307
This option enables a barotropic fluid (liquidlike) behaviour for continuum elements to be input. The Tait Equation of State (EoS) can be used to model liquids and is frequently used to model water in underwaterexplosion simulations. For water, classical constants are: γ = 7.15 and b = 331 MPa.
The expression used to compute the absolute pressure P in the fluid is:
P = B  ⎛ ⎜ ⎜ ⎝ 
 ^{γ} −1  ⎞ ⎟ ⎟ ⎠ 
where P is the fluid pressure, ρ is the current density and ρ_{ref} is the reference density.

For the TAIT EoS, the initial density ρ_{ini} is computed from the expression:
ρ_{ini} = ρ_{ref} 


with:
p_{ini} : initial pressure, ρ_{ref} : reference density
The expression used for the sound speed is:
C= 


When the reference pressure is different from the initial one, the fluid is not in equilibrium at the beginning. This is the case e.g. when a membrane is breaking at t=0, releasing a compressed fluid. For further detail, see page C.300.

The default value of p_{min} is p_{min} = 0.

Euler : perfect gas (P=ρ(γ−1)E_{internal});
Lagrange: adiabatic perfect gas (P=kρ^{γ}).
In a 1D case, the frictions against the walls can be taken into
account, since the dissipated energy will heat up the gas (modification
of the internal energy). To this end the user has to add a PARO material,
which must be associated with GAZP by means of the MULT material
(see pages C.370 and C.380).
"GAZP" "RO" rho "GAMMA" gamma "PINI" pini <"VISC" mu > ... ... < "CV" cv > < "PREF" pref > /LECTURE/
The reference pressure pref enables the initial state to be defined. If pref = pini, the gas is in equilibrium just before the computation starts; it will be perturbated by an external action, by the motion of a piston, for instance. If pref = 0, the problem consist in a computation with initial stresses determined by pini. This is the case when a membrane which was seperating two gases at different states disappears at the initial instant.
If cv is omitted, the temperature is not computed.
If it is present, the temperature is expressed in
degrees Celsius.
The different components of the ECR table are as follows:
ECR(1): pressureECR(2): density
ECR(3): velocity of sound
ECR(4): maximum pressure ever experienced
ECR(5): minimum pressure ever experienced
ECR(6): dynamic pressure: (P_{dyn}=1/2ρ v^{2})
ECR(7): temperature (if c_{V} is not zero) in degrees Celsius
ECR(8): total specific energy (E = h + 1/2v^{2})
C.315
This Equation of State can be used for both liquids and gases. It takes the following form:
P = (γ −1) ρ (e−q) − γ P_{inf} 
Where e is the internal energy per unit mass, ρ the density. γ is an empirical constant for liquids. P_{inf} is a constant representing the molecular attraction between molecules (liquid) and q is an additional constant. This expression is identical to the ideal gas EoS when P_{inf} and q is zero.

The reference pressure pref enables the initial state to be defined. If pref = pini, the gas is in equilibrium just before the computation starts; it will be perturbated by an external action, by the motion of a piston, for instance. If pref = 0, the problem consist in a computation with initial stresses determined by pini.

The expression used for the sound speed is:

This instruction enables a time dependent pressure to be imposed, inside an element.
For fluids modelled in ALE, this material allows to create a source
of mass flow, if it is used in conjunction with an imposed velocity
directive.
However, this source is limited to the case of a liquid (case "FLUI"),
of a perfect gas ("GAZP"), of a twophase mixture of water ("EAU") or
of a liquidgas mixture ("ADCR").

For "FLUI" see 7.8.2 page C.305, for "GAZP" see 7.8.4 page C.310, for "EAU" see 7.8.9 page C.350, for "ADCR" see 7.8.19 page C.430,
The "FONCTION" directive is described in 9.1 (page E.15).
The initial pressure, must correspond to
the origin of the curve.
The element deforms only under the action of
forces due to the imposed pressure (no stiffness).
The temperature is assumed constant.
In the case of water, for example, if the pressure increases one can pass
from a liquid phase to a vapor phase, but always at the same temperature.
The different components of the ECR table are the same as the components for the material with the same name.
C.330
Explosion caused by water injection into liquid sodium.
In 2D or 3D, one element or more (contiguous) elements may be
affected by the chemical reaction. In 1D, just one "TUBE"
or "TUYA" element must be used with this material.
In 1D or 3D there are two options for the water mass flow rate:
1) imposed curve as a function of time (keyword "DEBIT")2) calculation of a waterfilled pipeline meshed by elements of type TUBE or TUYA and coupling with the sodium mesh (keyword "DCOUP").

For the dimensioning, an injection curve requires a space similar to that
of a traction curve. The user will therefore have to specify
"TRAC" n1 n2, with n1 the maximum number of curves to be entered
(traction and injection), and n2 the maximum number of points.
In the elements affected by the reaction, it is assumed that the
reaction is instantaneous, that the mixture of reacting components
is always homogeneous and that the reaction is isothermal.
The "facteur" parameter allows to account for the vaporised ’soude’.
If there is none, then facteur = 0.5.
If the volume fraction of hydrogen (printed as ECR(4)) is above 1,
the program treats the mixture like pure hydrogen.
In a Lagrangian calculation (default option) the "NAH2" material
is attached only to the elements where the reaction takes
place. The "FLUI" material is used for the other elements.
In an Eulerian calculation (option "EULER" page A.30), the material "NAH2"
is affected to ALL fluid elements. The mass flow rate curve for the water
is only affected to the elements where the reaction occurs,
for the others one must write:
"DEBIT" 0 /LECTURE/
The components of the ECR table are as follows:
ECR(1) : absolute pressureECR(2) : density
ECR(3) : hydrogen concentration
ECR(4) : hydrogen volume occupation ratio
ECR(5) : total water mass flow rate for the set of elements
ECR(6) : water mass injected in each element

C.340
Explosion caused by water injection into liquid sodium.
It is possible to repeat this material as many times as needed,
provided the injections occur in different elements.
There are two possibilities concerning the water mass flow rate:
1) a time function is invoked (keyword "NUFO")2) compute a waterfilled pipeline meshed with TUBE or TUYA elements and coupled with the sodium mesh (keyword DCOU).

In the elements affected by the reaction, it is assumed that the
reaction is instantaneous, and that the mixture of reacting
materials is always homogeneous.
The "facteur" parameter allows to account for the vapor ’soude’.
If there is none, then facteur = 0.5.
The mesh will be subdivided in as many zones as necessary,
and for each of these an RSEA material will be defined, by
possibly varying the initial concentrations and the total pressures,
but the other parameters must be identical, so as to have exactly
the same constitutive laws for the different components of
each zone. Then, starting from the given concentration and the total
pressure ptot, EUROPLEXUS will compute de density of the mixture.
EUROPLEXUS will also recompute the gas concentrations in order to
account for the sodium vapor, if psat is not zero.
The elements where the reaction occurs will be distinguished
by one of two possible options: imposed injection or injection
coupled with the calculation of water mass flow rate (DCOU).
If psat and rhovap are absent, or if one only of
these values is given, it is the default value which is used:
psat is taken equal to one thousandth of ptot.
The value of rhovap is then proportional to psat,
and corresponds to a monoatomic vapor at a temperature
close to 300^{o} C.
The components of the ECR table are as follows:
ECR(1) : absolute pressure,ECR(2) : density of the twophase mixture,
ECR(3) : sound speed in the mixture,
ECR(4) : void fraction,
ECR(5) : argon mass fraction,
ECR(6) : hydrogen mass fraction,
ECR(13) : water mass flow rate (dm/dt)
ECR(14) : mass of water injected since the beginning.

This directive allows to treat water and its vapour as an homogeneous mixture. It is also possible to treat a water vapor explosion when energy is released within liquid water.

Do not forget to create the tables of physical properties of the water by means of directive "TEAU" or "TH2O" (page C.74).
The "TH2O" table is only working with equilibrated water.
If the mixture is singlephase, one should give the pressure
and the temperature, but the title is irrelevant.
If the mixture is twophase, one should give the pressure
and the title: EUROPLEXUS then computes the temperature.
The damping coefficient beta allows to damp out highfrequency
oscillations caused by the discretisation. By default beta is zero.
However, it is advised to use beta between
0.1% et 5%. One should be aware of the inevitable attenuations
of lower frequencies, especially if the mesh is coarse.
In fact, the eigenfrequencies of the structure are not very different
from the frequencies associated with the finite elements.
If the viscosity has to be considered, the two parameters mul and
muv must be related and given together.
The "MODE" parameter allows to account for the evolution of fluid close to the injection zone, in a less brutal fashion compared with directive "COEF". Its meaning is as follows:
mode = 0 : the injected energy i s independent from the fluid mass and nature,mode = 1 : the injected energy is proportional to the mass of water, but independent from its nature of liquid or vapor,
mode = 2 : the injected energy is proportional to the mass of liquid water,
mode = 3 : the injected energy is proportional to the volume of liquid water.
Modes 2 and 3 should not be used if the pressure exceeds the critical
value (Pcrit = 221 bar).
The "COEF" directive allows to limit the quantity of injected energy:
if the density during the computation becomes lower than the
limit density, then the injection is stopped.
This directive is brutal and not advisable.
It is preferable to use the "MODE" directive.
One may obtain the energy quantity released in a certain region
of the mesh by means of keyword "WINJ" in directive
"REGION" (page G.100).
By assigning a propagation velocity associated with an origin element
allows to avoid a brutal and instantaneous injection over an extensive
domain, which is irrealistic: this option is recommended
in case of a steam explosion calculation.
The components of the ECR table are as follows:
ECR(1) : absolute pressureECR(2) : density of the mixture
ECR(3) : sound speed
ECR(4) : mass title of the vapor (vapor mass/total mass)
ECR(5) : temperature of the mixture for equilibrated water, liquid temperature for metastable
ECR(6) : enthalpy of the mixture
ECR(7) : temperature of the mixture for equilibrated water, vapor temperature for metastable
ECR(9) : void ratio or volume ratio of the vapor (vapor volume/total volume)
For metastable water:
ECR(21) : vapor relative density (vapor mass/total volume)ECR(23) : index : 0 = equilibrium ; 1 = metastable
ECR(24) : specific enthalpy of the liquid water
In case of direct energy injection:
ECR(8) : power injected in the elementECR(14) : corium mass within the element
In case of energy injection by particles:
ECR(19) : initial volume of corium within the elementECR(20) : mean temperature of a corium particle
For a "BREC" element:

If the mixture is singlephase, one should give the pressure
and the temperature, but the title is irrelevant.
If the mixture is twophase, one should give the pressure

C.370
This directive allows, in association with the MULT material,
to account for the effects of pipe walls and cavity walls,
for elements of type TUBE, TUYA or CAVI.
"PARO" $[ "RUGO" rug "VISC" mu ; "RUGO" rug "VISL" mul "VISV" muv ; "TPAR" teta "COND" cof < "SURF" su > ; "PSIL" kl ; "FONC" numf < "SURF" su > ]$ < "COEF" nbr > /LECTURE/
The MULT material is used (page C.380) to associate the wall
defined by PARO with the corresponding internal fluid.
If the internal fluid is of type NAH2, EAU or RSEA,
ot is mandatory to specify the viscosities of both phases,
mul for the liquid and muv for the vapor. In all other cases,
the fluid is supposed to be singlephase, and only one
viscosity mu will be required.
In the case of heat exchange with the wall, the keyword SURF is
mandatory for the CAVI elements. For the elements of
type TUBE and TUYA it may be omitted, and in this case EUROPLEXUS
will compute the exchange surface starting from the geometrical
characteristics of the elements.
The kl coefficient (keyword PSIL) allows to compute the head loss
in the following way:
DP = kl * long * 0.5 * rho * V ** 2
with:
DP : head loss,long : length of the pipe,
rho : fluid density,
V : mean velocity,
Hence: kl = psi / Dh, where Dh is the hydraulic diameter.
The parameters associated with the wall material not included
in ECR are placed after the ECR for the fluid (see the
fluid documentation).
The components of the ECR table are as follows:
ECR(1) : wall temperatureECR(2) : conductance
ECR(4) : Reynolds number
ECR(5) : psi (of the formula K = psi * L / Dh)
C.375
This directive allows, in association with the MULT material and
elements of type BREC to enter parameters for the computation of the
fluid effects after the pipe break (outlet pressure, critical mass flow rate...).
"BREC" $[ "DCRI" idcri ; "PIMP" ipimp < "CONT" cont "EPAI" epai > ]$
The MULT material is used (page C.380) to associate the pipe break parameters
defined by BREC with the corresponding internal fluid. Only the
water material EAU is currenlty allowed for the fluid.
The keyword DCRI is used to impose a critical mass flow rate after the pipe break. Critical mass flow rate is computed using additional CL elements placed on both ends of the BREC element. Two modes are allowed:
The keyword PIMP is used to impose a pressure drop at the break with the imposed pressure being the pressure at saturated conditions, modified in order to take into account the break area [871]. This option is supposed to give a better representation of pressure wave generation at the break, focusing on the very firt instant after break opening. Two modes are allowed:
Two optional keywords CONT and EPAI can be used in conjunctin with the keyword PIMP:
For keyword DCRI, additional CL elements are needed for the mass flow rate to be calculated. If no CL elements are used, no critical mass flow rate is computed and no fow limitation is imposed. For keyword PIMP, BREC element can be used with or without CL elements, with no impact on the calculation If used, before the pipe break, the CL elements are automatically deactivated (see page D.590 for the definition of the break time).
C.380
This directive allows to assign several materials to the same element. For example, it is the case of a pipeline element, where one has to specify both the material for the internal fluid and the material of the wall plus, if necessary, a material describing the friction.
"MULT" n1 n2 < n3 > /LECTURE/
The materials concerned must be defined previously, and
are referenced by their law index (see LOI
, page C.100).
This is either the number explicitly given by the LOI
keyword, or the material definition order in the input file.
In the case of "TUBE" elements, n1 will be the index of the fluid
material and n2 the index of the friction material.
In the case of "TUYA" elements, the fluid must be referenced first,
the wall second, and the friction third, when present.
For example, if one has defined the materials in the following order:
the wall material first (1), then the fluid material (2), and finally
the friction material (3), the "MULT" directive must be coded as follows:
"MULT" 2 1 3 /LECTURE/
The stresses and the hardening parameters will be those
of the component materials. For example, for an
element of pipeline, the printed stresses will be those
of the associated beam (no printout of the stresses for
the internal fluid), and the ECR(i) will give first the
quantities related to the fluid material, then those
related to the wall material.
C.390
This option enables the processing of an incompressible or

This material only makes sense if the option "NAVIER"
has been required for the definition of the problem.
If the material is incompressible, c is useless. On the contrary,
c is necessary if the fluid is compressible, even at a
low level. In this case c is read and then the
value of (1/c^{2}) is stored in the material property.
It is essential to invert the connection matrix at each step.
Do not forget to add the option "FREQ" 1 when using the
instruction "LIAISON" (see page D.20).
The components of the ECR table are as follows:
ECR(1): absolute pressure of the element due to the viscous termsECR(2): density
ECR(3): additive term to the diagonal of B_{L}, the connections matrix.
ECR(4): additive term to the righthand side of the connections system
ECR(5): multiplicative term of the pressure
ECR(6): friction coefficient (see M1FROT)
ECR(7): Reynolds number
ECR(8:10): unused

Replaces a heterogeneous medium composed by a bundle of
tubes submerged in a fluid, by an equivalent homogeneous isotropic
medium in the acoustic sense. The densities and sound speeds
will be different along the three directions in space.
In the case of helicoidal coaxial bundles (2D axisymmetric or 3D),
the axis of the bundle must be along the Oz direction, the
helices have all the same axial step and are regularly spaced.
In the case of a straight bundle, (2D or 3D), the bundle axis is Oz,
and a side of the base ’motif’ must be parallel to Ox or Oy.
There are two options for the definition of the three densities
and of the three sound speeds:
a) The values are computed by EUROIPLEXUS as a function of the geometrical data (plane waves propagation).b) The values have another origin, and are prescribed.
The possible combinations between options and geometries
of the bundle are given in the following table:

The calculation may be done in Lagrangian or in Eulerian.
To conserv the fluid mass, an apparent fluid mass is used
(printed in ECR(2)), corresponding to that of a fictitious
liquid that would occupy the whole volume.
The modelisation chosen for the bundle implies anisotropy
effects on inertia and compressibility. For each principal
direction i of the bundle, the two parameters rhoi and rhoi*ci**2
must be defined. Hence the nodal masses are quite different from
those computed from the apparent density.
However, for an Eulerian calculation, the fluxes involve the
mass effectively transferred from an element to the other,
i.e. the code uses the density of the free fluid and the total
cross section of the passage. Consequently, the computed
(and printed) velocity is that of a fictitious free fluid
placed at the bundle entry (entry speed). In order to estimate the mean
velocity of the fluid within the tubes, it is necessary to
multiply the computed velocity by the ratio between the
crosssections.
If one has to impose an absorbing boundary condition at the
bundle border using elements CL2D, CL3D ou CL3T, he must care that
the product rho*c be the one corresponding to the considered direction;
since the CLxD take as rho the value of the neighbouring element,
i.e. the apparent density of the bundle, the sound of speed
must be accordingly corrected within directive "IMPE ABSO".
The presence of keyword "VISC" followed by the value of the
fluid viscosity triggers the calculation of the head losses
in the bundle. The formulation given by I.E.Idel’cik is
adopted (Mémento des pertes de charge, Eyrolles, Paris, 1978)
for the two principal directions of the bundle in the plane
orthogonal to the tubes.
The Blasius formula is used in the direction parallel to the
tubes (the Reynolds number is then computed by means of
the hydraulic diameter).
The components of the ECR table are as follows:
ECR(1) : absolute pressureECR(2) : apparent density
Then if VISC is present:
ECR(3) : halfcoefficient of friction along direction Ox or OrECR(4) : halfcoefficient of friction along direction Oy or Ot
ECR(5) : halfcoefficient of friction along direction Oz
