4.14.1 General Specification of Fluid Materials

The material type for a fluid material is “fluid”. The following parameters must be defined:
<density> Fluid referential density [M/L ]
<k> Bulk modulus [P]
<viscous> Specification of viscous model for
The <viscous> tag encloses a description of the viscous stress constitutive relation and associated material properties, as may be selected from the list provided in Section 4.14.2↓. The parameters <density> and <k> must be greater than 0. These parameters are always required.
Example:
<material id="1" name="Water" type="fluid">
	<density>1</density>
	<k>2.2e+09</k>
	<viscous type="Newtonian fluid">
		<mu>0.001</mu>
		<kappa>0</kappa>
	</viscous>
</material>
