# Density

 A material's mass density: must be defined in Abaqus/Standard for eigenfrequency and transient dynamic analysis, transient heat transfer analysis, adiabatic stress analysis, and acoustic analysis; must be defined in Abaqus/Standard for gravity, centrifugal, and rotary acceleration loading; must be defined in Abaqus/Explicit for all materials except hydrostatic fluids; can be specified as a function of temperature and predefined variables; can be distributed from nonstructural features (such as paint on sheet metal panels in a car) to the underlying elements using a nonstructural mass definition; and can be defined with a distribution for solid continuum elements in Abaqus/Standard. The following topics are discussed:
