 Equation of state for hydrodynamic pressure has to be prescribed via the /EOS card.
 In case of a linear material with a
volumetric dilatation:
${C}_{1}=\frac{E}{3\left(12\nu \right)}$ and ${C}_{4}=\frac{{\alpha}_{\nu}{C}_{1}}{\rho {C}_{\nu}T}$
${C}_{4}={C}_{5}=\gamma 1$ and ${C}_{0}={C}_{2}={C}_{3}=0$
then:(1) $$\begin{array}{ll}p\hfill & ={C}_{1}\mu +({C}_{4}+{C}_{5}\mu )E\hfill \\ \hfill & ={C}_{1}\mu +{C}_{4}(1+\mu )E\hfill \\ \hfill & ={C}_{1}\mu +{C}_{4}(1+\mu ){\rho}_{0}e\hfill \\ \hfill & ={C}_{1}\mu +{C}_{4}(1+\mu ){\rho}_{0}{C}_{\nu}T\hfill \end{array}$$(2) $$\begin{array}{ll}p\hfill & ={C}_{1}\mu +{C}_{4}\rho {C}_{\nu}T\hfill \\ \hfill & ={C}_{1}\mu +{\alpha}_{\nu}T\hfill \end{array}$$If $p=cst=0$ , then ${C}_{1}\mu +{\alpha}_{\nu}T=0$ l=; so $\mu =\frac{{\alpha}_{\nu}T}{{C}_{1}}$
Where, $\mu $

 $\mu <0$

 All thermal data ( ${\rho}_{0}{C}_{p},{T}_{0},A,\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\text{and}\text{\hspace{0.17em}}B$ ) can be defined with keyword /HEAT/MAT.
 If using LAW6 coupled with LAW37 for
liquid phase (without gas phase), the
compatibility of the liquid EOS is:
 $\Delta {P}_{1}={C}_{1}\mu $ for /MAT/LAW37 (BIPHAS)
 $p={C}_{0}+{C}_{1}\mu +{C}_{2}{\mu}^{2}+{C}_{3}{\mu}^{3}+({C}_{4}+{C}_{5}\mu )E$ for LAW6 via a polynomial EOS defined as in the Example above.
with ${C}_{0}={C}_{2}={C}_{3}={C}_{4}={C}_{5}=E=0$
then, $p={C}_{1}\mu $
 If using LAW6 coupled with LAW37 for gas
phase (without liquid phase), the compatibility of
the gas EOS is:
 $PV\gamma =const.$ for LAW37
 $p=\left(\gamma 1\right)\left(\mu +1\right)E$ for LAW6, via the /EOS/IDEALGAS equation of state.
Where, $E$ is the energy per unit volume.
