Presentation: Advanced Modeling of UHMWPE
I recently gave a presentation titled: "An Advanced Thermomechanical Constitutive Model for UHMWPE" at the Society of Engineering Science (SES) annual technical meeting. In this presentation I discussed a new material model framework for thermoplastic materials that aims to be both accurate and numerically efficient. The presentation can be downloaded from the attached link.
In the presentation I compared the predictions from the Three Network Model to the predictions from the Hybrid Model. Both of these models are commercially available from Veryst Engineering.
