This document shows how to use MFront mechanical behaviour in the ZeBuLoN finite element solver. It is extracted from the zmat documentation.

This interface has been tested with the version $$8.5$$ of ZeBuLoN. The files used can be downloaded here.

# Compilation of the behaviour

The following instruction will compile the MFront behaviour using the zmat interface :

\$ mfront --obuild --interface=zmat norton.mfront

# Usage in ZeBuLoN

The generated library must be placed in a directory registered by the ZEBUPATH environment variable. The generated library is then automatically loaded at ZeBuLoN start-up and all the behaviours are available.

The behaviour can then be used as standard ZMAT behaviour:
