Introduction to materials
Introduction to materials
Material is one of the principal parameters that affect the behaviour of the structure.
In SCIA Engineer, the user can define his/her own material or use a pre-defined material type from SCIA Engineer database. The predefined materials correspond to materials defined in particular technical codes. The properties of predefined
materials thus depend on the active code adjusted in the current project.
-5-
Chapter 1
Material types
In SCIA Engineer the user may select from the following material types:
steel
represents material based on a particular national code for materials
concrete
represents material based on a particular national code for materials
timber
represents material based on a particular national code for materials
general
enables the user to define an arbitrary material that is completely independent on codes assigned to the project
Note: Even the properties of a code-based material may be edited.
-6-
Material properties
Material properties
For each material, the user must specify its properties. It is clear that for material types corresponding with material grades
of a particular technical code the properties are predefined.
The properties may be divided into two groups:
l
basic material properties,
l
advanced material properties.
Basic material properties
;The basic properties are those that are necessary for the standard finite element calculation of the model. Without them,
no analysis is possible.
The basic parameters are:
l
unit mass,
l
modulus of elasticity,
l
Poisson’s coefficient.
Advanced material properties
The advanced parameters may be required for:
l
either an advanced type of calculation (e.g. non-linear analysis, dynamic calculation, etc.),
l
or checking to a particular technical code.
Examples of advanced parameters may be:
l
independent G modulus,
l
logarithmic decrement,
l
nominal or design strength,
l
ultimate strength,
l
etc.
;There are also special material parameters that do not affect the calculation and results, but that may help the user to make
the model clearer. This is e.g. colour. The colour may be used when 1D members are displayed on the screen. Thus, all the
1D members made of the same material will be drawn in the same colour. The display style can be set in View parameters.
Note: ; The units for the individual material parameters may be set in Units setup.

Materials manager
The Materialsmanager is a tool that provides for control of material defined in the project. The Materials manager provides
for creating, editing, deleting, and saving of materials.
The manager itself uses the same "manager philosophy" as other SCIA Engineer managers do. It contains control buttons
for the standard manager operations:
[New]
It creates a new material.
[Edit]
It opens an editing dialogue where the material’s properties may be changed.
[Copy]
This function creates a copy of the selected material.
[Change]
[Delete]
It enables the user to replace an existing material with a new one. All the members in the project that
ware made of the original material are now made of the new one.
It removes the selected material from the project database. It is not possible to delete material that is
used anywhere in the structure.
[Undo] / [Redo]
It performs an Undo or Redo operation.
;[Text Output]
;It opens a small document window with a table that summarises properties of selected materials.
[Read from system database]
[Read from user
database]
[Save to user
database]
It reads predefined materials from system database.
It reads material types that the user has saved into his/her external database.
It saves selected material types into the user’s external database.
In order to open the Materials manager use:
l
either menu function Tools > Materials,
l
or tree menu function Tools > Materials,
l
or button Materials (
) on toolbar Project.

Materials manager
Note: The Materials manager can also be opened from various property dialogues that contain item Material. Such an item contains a button to open the Materials manager.

Chapter 1
Specifying the materials for the project
When a new project is being created, the user has to specify basic project parameters. Material is one of the compulsory
parameters. It is not necessary to specify all the materials that will be used. However, at least one material type must be
selected (e.g. steel).
The program adds into the project all material grades defined for the selected material type in the active code of the project.
The active code can be also defined in the project setup dialogue.
It is possible to add some material type in the same way any time later (i.e. not only during the phase of project creation). The
user may use tree menu function Project to open the Project settings dialogue. Here it is possible to add ticks to any other
material types that have not been selected at the beginning. Once again, the program adds into the project all materials that
are specified in the active national code for the selected material type.
Note: Unless the specific material type is selected in the project settings;, it is not possible to
add such material into the project. For example, unless timber is selected in the project settings dialogue, the material manager does not allow the user to add any timber material.

Defining a new code-specific material
Defining a new code-specific material
All the code specific materials (that means material grades for particular material types specified by a particular national technical code) are stored in the material system database.
The procedure for the definition of a new code-specific material
1. Open the ;Materials manager.
2. Click button [System database] (
).
3. A dialogue with available materials appears on the screen. Its left hand side window shows that materials defined in the
project. The right hand side window lists all available code-specific materials.
4. Add as many materials into the project as required.
5. Close the System database dialogue.
6. Close the Materials manager.
Note: Unless the specific material type is selected in the project settings, it is not possible to
add such material into the project. For example, unless timber is selected in the project settings dialogue, the material manager does not allow the user to add any timber material.

Chapter 1
Defining a new user-defined code-specific material
The user may need to define a material (related to a specific code) that does not coincide with any standard grade specified
in technical codes.
The procedure for the definition of a new user-defined code-specific material
1. Open the ;Materials manager.
2. Click button [New] (
).
3. Select the required material type.
4. A new material is added to the List of defined materials in the Materials manager.

Chapter 1
Reviewing the defined material parameters
There are a few ways to see and scrutinise the parameters of a particular material.
;Property table in the Materials
The Materials manager contains a vertically oriented window that displays the para-
manager
meters of currently selected material in a property table.
Property table in the dialogue
Each dialogue for editing of a material contains a property table with all the available
for editing of a material
parameters of the edited material.
;Document-style view in the preview window
This is the most sophisticated kind of display for parameters of a material.
Property table in the Materials manager
The property table in the Materials manager provides for quick overview of parameters of individual materials. It is possible
to edit some of the parameters.
Property table in the dialogue for editing of a particular material type
The property table in this dialogue provides for both lucid overview of the material parameters and their straightforward
modification.
Document-style view in the preview window
The material parameters can be displayed in tabular form in the Preview window. The preview window displays a table with
all the material parameters sorted in it.
The table is in fact a standard SCIA Engineer document table and consequently its format can be adjusted to meet any specific requirements. The adjustment can be done the same way as with any other document table.
The picture below shows a sample preview of material properties for three selected materials.
