Field Contents SI Unit Example
SID Non-structural material damping set identification number.

No default (Integer > 0)

S# Identification number of non-structural material damping sets defined via NSGE and NSGE1 entries.

No default (Integer > 0, SID S#)



  1. Non-structural material damping in this format must be selected by the NSGE Subcase Information selector.
  2. No S# may be the identification number of a non-structural material damping set defined by another NSGEADD entry.
  3. NSGEADD entries take precedence over NSGE and NSGE1 entries. If both/all have the same SID, only the NSGEADD entry will be used.
  4. Optimization is currently not supported with non-structural damping.
