This command is only supported by $\gamma SPH$. The shear modulus is defined as:

$\displaystyle{G = G_0 \left[ 1 + \frac{G'_p}{G_0} \frac{\mathrm{max}(p,0)}{\eta^{1/3}} + \frac{G'_t}{G_0} \mathrm{max}(T-T_0,0) \right] }$

where $\eta = \rho/\rho_0$. The flow stress (von Mises) is:

$\displaystyle{\sigma = \mathrm{min} \left( \sigma_{max}, \sigma_0 \left[ 1 + \beta (\varepsilon_{eff}^p + \varepsilon_i) \right]^n \right) \frac{G}{G_0} }$

The melting temperature is defined as:

$\displaystyle{T_m = T_{m0} \eta^{\left[2(\Gamma_0 - a - \frac{1}{3})\right]} \cdot \mathrm{e}^{2a \left( 1 - \frac{1}{\eta} \right) }}$

At temperatures $T \gt T_m$, $G=0$ and $\sigma=0$.
