Time varying material properties

      Hi!

      I am currently working on a problem with decaying mechanical properties due to environmental influence. Experiments have been completed resulting in strength reduction data after several time periods of exposure to the harsh marine environment. The idea is to do a "long term" quasi-static analysis with the changing Young's modulus as a prediction of the service time reduction of marine structures.

      What would be the best way to introduce this time dependent variation of Young's modulus in to the model material data?

      Best regards,

      GoranV
