LS-DYNA Transversely Anisotropic Elastic Plastic (MAT_037)

Test ID



This TestPak consists of a tensile stress-strain with Poisson's ratio. Also calculated is the Lankford parameter associated with the transverse behavior of the material. A load curve specifying stress vs. plastic strain is included for plasticity modeling. (Warning: this option is available only if using shell elements.) Data are analyzed and formatted for input into the LS-DYNA MAT_037 card.

Included Tests

1x D-010 Solid Density
2x M-206 Tensile Stress-Strain, Strength, Modulus and Poisson's Ratio



: 15 thin sheets or film



This model is useful for simulating transversely anisotropic material used in forming. The plastic option is available only for shell elements.
