Parameter definition

VariableDescription
entype${}_{weld}$ Weld entity type
options: P, PS
enid${}_{weld}$ Weld entity ID
entype${}_{base}$ Base material entity type
options: P, PS
enid${}_{base}$ Base material entity ID
cid${}_{sigy}$ ID of a CURVE or FUNCTION describing yield stress as function of the distance from the weld
default: not used
cid${}_{D0}$ ID of a CURVE or FUNCTION describing initial damage as function of the distance from the weld
default: not used

Description

This command is used to define mechanical properties in a HAZ after a welding operation. Initial yield stress and damage are defined as functions of the distance from the weld. The yield stress can be accessed in FUNCTION through the built in variable sigy0.
