# Linear elastic behavior

 A linear elastic material model: is valid for small elastic strains (normally less than 5%); can be isotropic, orthotropic, or fully anisotropic; can have properties that depend on temperature and/or other field variables; and can be defined with a distribution for solid continuum elements in Abaqus/Standard. The following topics are discussed:
