Optional parameters
 DEPENDENCIES

Set this parameter equal to the number of field variables included in the
definition of the density, in addition to temperature. If this parameter is
omitted, it is assumed that the density is constant or depends only on
temperature.
See Material data definition for more information.
This parameter is not relevant in an
Abaqus/Standard
analysis if spatially varying density is defined using a distribution. See
Distribution definition.
 PORE FLUID

This parameter applies only to
Abaqus/Standard
analyses.
Include this parameter if the density of the pore fluid in a porous medium
is being defined.
Data lines to
define mass density
 First
line

Mass density. (Units of ML^{−3}.)

Temperature.

First field variable.

Second field variable.

Etc., up to six field variables.
 Subsequent lines (only needed if the DEPENDENCIES parameter has a value greater than six)

Seventh field variable.

Etc., up to eight field variables per line.
Repeat this set of data
lines as often as necessary to define the density as a function of temperature
and other predefined field
variables.
Data line to define
spatially varying mass density for solid continuum elements in an
Abaqus/Standard
analysis using a distribution
 First (and only) line


Distribution name. The data defined in the distribution must be in units of
ML^{−3}.
