4.15.1.1. ElasticIsotropic

nDMaterial('ElasticIsotropic', matTag, E, nu, rho=0.0)

This command is used to construct an ElasticIsotropic material object.

matTag (int) integer tag identifying material
E (float) elastic modulus
nu (float) Poisson’s ratio
rho (float) mass density (optional)

The material formulations for the ElasticIsotropic object are:

  • 'ThreeDimensional'
  • 'PlaneStrain'
  • 'Plane Stress'
  • 'AxiSymmetric'
  • 'PlateFiber'
