Introduction
The Haupt-Sedlan branch, is a component of an elastomeric damper model.
NOTES
- The Haupt-Sedlan branch is defined by the following parameters.
- An elastic spring of stiffness constant k_{v} > 0.
- Material constants z_{max}, z_{min}, and z_{q}.
- Optionally, material constants ζ and ξ can be defined. If ζ = 0 the model degenerates and the internal state becomes a constant, z = z_{max}. If both ζ = 0 and ξ = 0, the model further degenerates and becomes identical to the Maxwell fluid model. (Default values: ζ = 0, ξ = 0.)
- It is possible to attach comments to the definition of the object; these comments have no effect on its definition.
