Field Contents SI Unit Example
unit_ID (Optional) Unit Identifier.

(Integer, maximum 10 digits)

brick_ID Element identifier.


Nb_integr Number of integration points.

Corresponds to the property definition of this element.


Isolnod Number of nodes of solid element.


Isolid Solid elements formulation.

Corresponds to the solid element formulation in property definition of this element.


nvars Number of auxiliary internal variables.


V1 to Vnvars First to Nvarsth auxiliary variable values (3 per line).




  1. If AUX, format line 3 has to be repeated in order to have nvars auxiliary internal variables with 3 values per line.
  2. The initial state for brick may be defined by more than one block.
