Concrete -L and Drucker-Prager properties


    • Korrenn Broaddus

      So i'm trying to model concrete to failure in Explicit Dynamics. I'm currently using concrete-L just to get the hang of things, but I was wondering how to change the material properties to the ones I want for my actual analysis. I've attached an image of the engineering data below for the default Concrete-L in explicit materials. 

      The material properties I need to be able to change for my analysis are:

      • Young's Modulus, 
      • Compressive strength
      • Tensile strength

      Could someone help me see where these properties are stored in here, and how to change them.

      If I add the linear elastic properties, will it overide the drucker-prager behavior, or will that still work?

      Thank you so much.
