nDMaterial('PlaneStrain', matTag, mat3DTag)

This command is used to construct a plane-stress material wrapper which converts any three-dimensional material into a plane strain material by imposing plain strain conditions on the three-dimensional material.

matTag (int) integer tag identifying material
mat3DTag (int) integer tag of previously defined 3d ndMaterial material
