How to create a material model in ANSYS

      Hello,


      I work in Biomechanics research and I am trying to simulate muscle activity in my model. I found that the LS-DYNA software has a material model for muscles (MAT_S15); any idea how can I define this material model in ANSYS?


       


      Thank you,


      Jess

      Read the LS-DYNA documentation to see the equations used in the S15 muscle material.


      Then read the ANSYS documentation to see which material models use similar equations.

      Thank you for your insightful reply.


       


      Can you please attach me the link of ANSYS documentation where I can find the equations of material model?


       


      Also, in case I didn’t find similar equations, is there a way to manually insert the equations of the material?


       


      Thank you for your time,

      If you have ANSYS installed, from the Windows Start menu, go to the ANSYS folder and pick ANSYS Help.


      ANSYS has a capability to create a custom material, but I have never done that.
