Simulating neo-hookean material

Dear all,
I am using the example given in the FF documentation about “Compressible Neo-hookean materials” in the “Mathematical Models” menu.
I am wondering why the program makes use of only one Lame coefficient, mu (declared line 238).
The other one, D, is declared (line 239) but never used.
Thanks a lot for any clue!

Just to play
I rebuild the test nl-elas-neo-Hooken
nl-elas-neo-Hookean-v2.edp (2.9 KB)

with new set of macro

With a clean set of Lame coefficient

Thank you very much.
I will try that.

Hi Frédéric,

I also used this neo-Hookean mechanical model. I checked some literature and found that the neo-Hookean model with only one parameter means it is an incompressible model. So I want to make sure whether the example code given in the documentation is compressible or incompressible?

Thank you!

I sorry I miss this message,
I do not now , I am not specialists in solide mechanics

Thank you for your reply. I will try both and see if the differences are large.
