Hi Udaya,
Could you post this question as an Issue on GitHub? I think very few people keep looking at the Forum.
How about having a placeholder for a data value container in constitutive law and define a default behavior for GetValue() and SetValue() functions rather than leaving them virtual? Doesn't it help avoid duplication of code and repetitive calculation while defining the constitutive laws on custom applications side? This probably could save on computational time with some memory overhead.

Hi Rafael,
I strongly suggest to post this question again on the GitHub site, as a new Issue. As everone moved there probably nobody saw your question here.
Sorry about the inconvenience,

Computational Fluid Dynamics / Periodic Boundary conditions

Dear Kratos Team

Im interested in implementing periodic boundary conditions. I found the PeriodicConditionUtilities, could you give a small example about how to use it?

I'd like to implement a tube wit periodic boundaries.

Please get in contact with Vicente Mataix ( or Josep Maria Carbonell (, they have been working on different types of contact between solids. You will see a lot of activity in GitHub on the recent development of contact algorithms.

Hi Peter,
Yes, it is possible, simply write:


element.Properties returns the properties, then you just have to get the Id of that.
I hope this helps,

it is a simple question. Is it possible to get the property Id of an element in Python similar to the element Id (element.Id)??

Hey Guys,

I am trying to implement contact mechanics for Master thesis, can you please provide me the application file / python file for contact Mechanics application so that I can see how can I use contact mechanics application for my use.

Best Regards

Hello Developers,

Thanks for the wonderful OOPs finite element library,

I have just started with Kratos for material point method and am trying to understand the entire structure of the code briefly. Can you please help me in understanding variable base interface ??
