Viscoelastic materials in explicit dynamics

      Can anyone tell me how to add long term shear modulus as material property in ANSYS for carrying out explicit dynamics? n

      nAfter you define the experimental data for shear modulus and/or bulk modulus as a function of time, and perform the fitting process, the prony coefficients are obtained. The long term shear modulus (first term in prony series) would be calculate from these prony coefficients. Check out the help documentation - 4.7. Viscoelasticity (ansys.com) and 6.2. Viscoelastic Material Curve-Fitting (ansys.com). nRegards,nIshan.nn
