This command is used to construct a uniaxial bilinear steel material object with kinematic hardening and optional isotropic hardening described by a non-linear evolution equation (REF: Fedeas).

uniaxialMaterial Steel01 $matTag $Fy $E0 $b <$a1 $a2 $a3 $a4>

$matTag integer tag identifying material
$Fy yield strength
$E0 initial elastic tangent
$b strain-hardening ratio (ratio between post-yield tangent and initial elastic tangent)
$a1 isotropic hardening parameter, increase of compression yield envelope as proportion of yield strength after a plastic strain of $a2*($Fy/E0). (optional)
$a2 isotropic hardening parameter (see explanation under $a1). (optional).
$a3 isotropic hardening parameter, increase of tension yield envelope as proportion of yield strength after a plastic strain of $a4*($Fy/E0). (optional)
$a4 isotropic hardening parameter (see explanation under $a3). (optional)

NOTES:

  • If strain-hardening ratio is zero and you do not expect softening of your system use BandSPD solver.
