Hello friends,

I am required to introduce different stiffness along X, Y and Z axis of a solid cube(Kxx, Kyy and Kzz). I am struggling to find an option which enables me to add these different stiffness values in Abaqus.

OR

I have a spring stiffness value of 197.39 kN/m. I am suppose to define a 3D Solid material which incorporates this stiffness value in its material properties.

How can I do this in ABAQUS?

Thanks in Advance !

You can use anisotropic elasticity, or anisotropic hyperelasticity.
