Hysteresis modeling in ABAQUS
Hi. My name is Hamid. I am using ABAQUS v6.4 to model the hysteretic behavior of tire tread block in contact with road. I use the hysteresis model implemented in ABAQUS. I want to show the effect of creep rate dependency on contact variables such as contact pressure, etc. so I need to know which of four parameters in hysteresis model (S, m, c and A) should be changed in order to take the variation in level of hysteresis behavior into account. In other words, if we increase, for example, the value of A what would be the effect on hysteretic behavior (increase or decrease?). Thank you in advance.
