M. To assign material constants
To assign material constants to model objects (beams, plates, or solids), use the following procedure.
You may want to set the input units to a familiar set of units for a particular material value before assigning a material constant.
- Select the model object which have the same material constant.
Specifications ribbon tab, select the
Constants tool in the
A drop-down list of material constants opens.
Select the constant you want to assign:
- Young's Modulus
- Poisson's Ratio
- Shear Modulus
- Thermal Coefficient
- Damping Ratio
- Select the To Selection option to limit the assignment to the selection set.
- Click OK.
