Hysteretic material

Post by ssami » Wed Feb 10, 2021 2:12 pm

Hi everyone,

I have a question about the Hysteretic material. Three nodes should be defined to model this material ($e1p, $s1p) , ($e2p, $s2p) , ($e3p, $s3p), is it possible to define more than three nodes for this material, such that we can define 4 or 5 nodes to simulate this material?

Thank you.

No, you can only define three points on the backbone of the HystereticMaterial.
