This part describes how to define material properties for use by Finite Elements in B2000++.

All material properties described in this part are defined in MDL inside the material command.

An overview of the available material types is given in the following table:

Material type Description
isotropic,orthotropic,anisotropic Linear elastic material models for stress analysis.
laminate,abd,pshell Laminates and equivalent-stiffness-layer materials.
mooney_rivlin,blatz_ko (B2000++ Pro) Nonlinear hyperelastic material models for finite-strain analysis of rubber and rubber-foam materials.
viscoelastic (B2000++ Pro) Viscoelastic linear material models for stress analysis.
heat Linear and nonlinear material model for heat analysis.
user User-defined material.
