Definitions
Field  Contents  SI Unit Example 

mat_ID  Material identifier. (Integer, maximum 10 digits) 

unit_ID  Unit Identifier. (Integer, maximum 10 digits) 

E_{1}  Maximum specific energy. 2 Default = 1^{30} (Real) 
$\left[\frac{\text{J}}{{\text{m}}^{\text{3}}}\right]$ 
E_{2}  Failure specific energy. 2 Default = 2^{30} (Real) 
$\left[\frac{\text{J}}{{\text{m}}^{\text{3}}}\right]$ 
I_Dam  Damage calculation flag. 4
Default = 1 (Integer) 

fct_ID  Function identifier for
$f\left(\dot{\epsilon}\right)$
. It is the function of specific energy E_{1} and E_{2} scaling factor vs. strain rate. (Integer) 

Xscale  Scale factor for abscissa of the
function. Default = 1.0 (Real) 
$\left[\frac{\text{1}}{\text{s}}\right]$ 
fail_ID  Failure criteria

Comments
 The element is
deleted, if D=1 for one integration point.
(1) $$D=\frac{E{E}_{1}}{{E}_{2}{E}_{1}}$$  The specific energy is the current internal energy of the element divided by the current element volume. Internal energy (IE) could be observed in time history plot.
 The fail_ID is used with /STATE/BRICK/FAIL and /INIBRI/FAIL. There is no default value. If the line is blank, no value will be output for failure model variables in the /INIBRI/FAIL (written in .sta file with /STATE/BRICK/FAIL option).
 The I_Dam option improves damage calculation and stability calculating damage, it is not available for shell elements and material laws N° < 29 . It is available for the /MAT/LAW25 (CRASURV) law, if using /PROP/TYPE51 or /PLY and /STACK options.
