Lame MU#

Lame MU = {yes | no}

Description / Usage#

This option allows you to plot the Lame MU mechanical property, which is written to the Output EXODUS II file as the variable LAME_MU. This is a useful feature for temperature dependent mechanical properties and the like. Contouring this variable LAME_MU over the domain can be useful in explaining some physical phenomena.

The permissible values for this postprocessing option are:


Calculate the Lame MU and output as a nodal variable in the Output EXODUS II file.


Do not calculate the the coefficient (default).


The following sample card requests LAME_MU be written to the EXODUS II file:

Lame MU = yes
