Can i attribute the hysterisis damping property to the beam by using this APDL command?


      Hello everyone, I am analyzing the harmonic response of a beam in ANSYS workbench and I need to assign the loss factor (hysterisis or structural damping) to the beam I am studying . My question is is it possible, in my case, to add the following APDL command (MP,DMPS,MATID,0.01) below the object in the geometry branch?
