# 4.13.3.5. Parallel Material¶

uniaxialMaterial('Parallel', matTag, *MatTags, '-factors', *factorArgs)

This command is used to construct a parallel material object made up of an arbitrary number of previously-constructed UniaxialMaterial objects.

 matTag (int) integer tag identifying material MatTags (list (int)) identification tags of materials making up the material model factorArgs (list (float)) factors to create a linear combination of the specified materials. Factors can be negative to subtract one material from an other. (optional, default = 1.0)
