Structural material property assignments
StructuralMaterialAssignment object contains the
description of material properties of a structural analysis model. A
container has a vector of
objects in its
To create the material properties assignments for your structural analysis model, use
Properties of StructuralMaterialAssignment
RegionType — Region type
Region type, returned as
'Face' for a 2-D region, or
'Cell' for a 3-D region.
RegionID — Region ID
vector of positive integers
Region ID, returned as a vector of positive integers. To determine which
ID corresponds to which portion of the geometry, use the
pdegplot function, setting the
'FaceLabels' name-value pair to
YoungsModulus — Young's modulus
Young's modulus of the material, returned as a positive number.
PoissonsRatio — Poisson's ratio
Poisson's ratio of the material, returned as a positive number.
MassDensity — Mass density
Mass density of the material, returned as a positive number. This property is required when modeling gravitational effects.
CTE — Coefficient of thermal expansion
Coefficient of thermal expansion, returned as a real number. This argument is required for thermal stress analysis. Thermal stress analysis requires the structural model to be static.
HystereticDamping — Hysteretic damping parameter
Hysteretic damping parameter, returned as a nonnegative number. This type of damping is also called structural damping.
