# Mutually exclusive properties¶

Some properties are mutually exclusive of each other and require that only one property in the mutually exclusive set be unsuppressed. The addition or removing of the suppression for one of these properties automatically suppresses the other mutually exclusive properties.

For example, defining Isotropic Elasticity and Orthotropic Elasticity for the same material represents redundant elasticity behavior. Only one behavior can be active for the material. When such a conflict occurs, the property defined last is used and the previously defined, conflicting property is automatically suppressed.

The properties that are mutually exclusive are grouped in the following table.

Group | Material Property |
---|---|

Elastic properties | Isotropic Elasticity, Orthotropic Elasticity, Anisotropic Elasticity, Mooney-Rivlin, Neo-Hookean, Polynomial, Yeoh, Ogden, Arruda-Boyce, Gent, Blatz-Ko, Ogden Foam, Extended Tube, Mullins Effect |

Plastic properties | Bilinear Isotropic Hardening, Multilinear Isotropic Hardening, Bilinear Kinematic Hardening, Multilinear Kinematic Hardening |

Thermal conductivity properties | Thermal Conductivity Isotropic, Thermal Conductivity Orthotropic |

Resistivity properties | Isotropic Resistivity, Orthotropic Resistivity |

Electric permittivity properties | Isotropic Relative Permittivity, Orthotropic Relative Permittivity |

Dielectric loss properties | Isotropic Dielectric Loss Tangent, Orthotropic Dielectric Loss Tangent |

Magnetic permeability properties | Isotropic Relative Permeability, Orthotropic Relative Permeability |

Magnetic loss properties | Isotropic Relative Imaginary Permeability, Isotropic Magnetic Loss Tangent, Orthotropic Magnetic Loss Tangent |
