GEOMECHANICS_MATERIAL_PROPERTY

Specifies geomechanics material properties to be associated with a geomechanics region in the problem domain. The Young’s modulus and Poisson’s ratio (for the linear elastic model), rock density (used in body force calculation), Biot’s coefficient and thermal expansion coefficient can be set here.

Required Cards:

ID <int>
Id of the material
YOUNGS_MODULUS <float> [Pa]
Young’s modulus of the material
ROCK_DENSITY <float> [kg/m3]
Density of the material
BIOT_COEFFICIENT <float>
Biot coefficient of the material
THERMAL_EXPANSION_COEFFICIENT <float>
Thermal expansion coefficient of the material
POISSONS_RATIO <float> [Pa/K]
Poisson’s ratio of the material
