Optional parameters
 DEPENDENCIES

Set this parameter equal to the number of field variable dependencies
included in the definition of the parameters, in addition to temperature. If
this parameter is omitted, it is assumed that the parameters depend only on
temperature.
 SHEAR

This parameter is relevant only when TYPE=LOGARITHMIC.
Set SHEAR=G to define the deviatoric behavior with a constant shear
modulus G.
Set SHEAR=POISSON (default) to compute the instantaneous shear modulus from the
bulk modulus and Poisson's ratio. The Poisson's ratio should be given on the
data lines.
 STIFFNESS

This parameter is relevant only when TYPE=POWER LAW.
Set STIFFNESS=TANGENT (default) to indicate that the porous elastic material
constants define the tangent modulus.
Set STIFFNESS=SECANT to indicate that the porous elastic material constants define
the secant modulus.
 TYPE

Set TYPE=LOGARITHMIC (default) to define a logarithmic relationship between the
pressure and the volumetric elastic strain.
Set TYPE=POWER LAW to define a powerlaw relationship between the pressure and
the Young's modulus.

Value of the logarithmic bulk modulus, $\kappa $.
(Dimensionless.)

Value of the shear modulus, G.

Value of the elastic tensile limit, ${p}_{t}^{el}$.
(This value cannot be negative.)

Temperature, $\theta $.

First field variable.

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

Fifth field variable.

Etc., up to eight field variables per line.
Repeat this set of data
lines as often as necessary to define the dependence of the material parameters
$\kappa $,
G, and ${p}_{t}^{el}$
on temperature and field
variables.
