Create a MODA

Add as many Models (normal or tightly coupled) as you like by clicking on “Add Model” or “Add Tightly Coupled Model”. You can expand each Model and each Model section and add information (1. + 2.). To delete a Model click on “Remove” (3.).

Physics Equations and Materials Relations
If you want to add physics equations to a model go to the “Generic Physics of the Model Equation(1.) section and click on “Add a Set” (2.). Next add an equation to the set by clicking “Add Equation” (3.). Now you can select a main type and insert the information and equations of the model (4.).

If you want to add a material relation to the model go to the “Generic Physics of the Model Equation” section and click on “Add.” Then you can insert the information in the appeared fields.

Click on “Remove” if you want to delete the equation/relation. You are asked to confirm the deletion. We recommend to save the changes afterwards.
