How do I define Piezoelectric material properties in Ansys APDL?

      I am trying to input PVDF material properties in Ansys APDL R16.0; I have got Strain coefficients, Coupling Coefficients, Dielectric constant, Elastic Constant, and Tensile strength. How and where do I input these values in APDL?

      See example '2.3.4. Example: Piezoelectric Analysis of a Bimorph' in the help manual.
      (It is in the APDL manual ch.2 Direct coupled fields, and sub-ch., 2.3. Piezoelectric Analysis)

      Thank you

      Thank you for the suggestion. I am using the APDL version and wanted to know where exactly to input those values. Kindly help regarding this.

      See these example they have the apdl commands to do that - so that is how you input them via commands - to learn that (apdl) can take time (there should be a lot of tutorials online and in our help manual to learn apdl) . best of luck
