Field Contents SI Unit Example
TID Table identification number.

(Integer > 0)

Ti Temperature values. Must be listed in ascending order.


TIDi Table identification numbers of TABLES1 entries.

(Integer > 0)



  1. TIDi must be unique with respect to all TABLES1 and TABLEST table identification numbers.
  2. The end of the table is indicated by the existence of ENDT in either of the two fields following the last entry. An error is detected if any continuations follow the entry containing the end-of-table flag ENDT.
  3. This table is referenced by MATS1 entries that define elasto-plastic (TYPE=PLASTIC) materials.
  4. Temperature-dependent materials can be activated at the subcase level via different options (such as TEMP(MAT), TEMP(BOTH), DLOAD (via TLOAD1, TLOAD2 and TEMP/TEMPD Bulk Data Entries), etc.) depending on the subcase type.
