Introduction
The Höfer-Lion branch, is a component of an elastomeric damper model.
NOTES
- The Höfer-Lion branch is defined by the following parameters.
- An elastic spring of stiffness constant k_{v} > 0.
- A material constant τ_{0} > 0.
- Optionally, material constant d_{i} and τ_{qi} are defined in pairs and an equal number of them must be defined. If all d_{i} = 0 and τ_{qi} = 0, the model degenerates and becomes identical to the Maxwell fluid model. (Default values: d_{i} = 0,τ_{qi} = 0.)
- It is possible to attach comments to the definition of the object; these comments have no effect on its definition.
