StructuralMaterial

Material

Material is the basic entity affecting the behaviour of the structure. It is subsequently applied to a chosen profile (StructuralCrossSection). The user can use a pre-defined material or change the properties to get a custom one. The predefined materials correspond to materials defined in particular technical codes.The specification in excel:

Specification in excel:

Name of the column header
Type of data
Value example or enum definition
Required value
Description
Name
String
S235
yes
Human readable unique name of the material *see notes
Type
Enum
Concrete
Steel
Timber
Aluminium
Masonry
Other
yes
The type of material
Subtype
String
Hot rolled
no
The subtype of the material, e.g. hot rolled, cold formed, stainless steel, prestressed concrete, fiber-reinforced concrete, UHPC etc.
Quality
String
S235
yes
The quality grade of the material. Use a commonly known naming of grades of specific structural material. Example:
Steel - S235, S275, S355...
Concrete - C16/20, C25/30, C30/35...
Timber - C18, C22, D18...
Unit mass [kg/m3]

Design properties
String
1|1.1; 2|4.8; 9|1100
no
Custom design characteristics of the material. The format of the data has to follow this convention: "label of the design property" "|" "value of the design property" The list of available properties with indexes can be found in Annex.

no
Unique attribute designation

Notes

"Name" is recommended to set the same as the "Quality" of the defined material.
