Hey guys, Im trying to do a model of a wall supported by a beam, with a distributed load on the top of the wall. Well, I need do define the following characteristics to my material:

Weight/Volume, Youngs Modulus, Poisson Ratio, Shear Modulus, Coefficient of Thermal Expansion, Concrete Compressive Strenght.

I find how to define the weight/volume (density), the Youngs Modulus and Poisson Ratio (elastic isotropic), but I dont know how to define the other 3 characteristics. Do you have any tips to me?

Im considering the self-weight of the elements, so Im applying a gravity load. To apply this type of load I just need to put the acceleration of the gravity (g=9.81) on the component 2 field?

Warm Regards
