Hybrid model theory - version 2
This file presents an updated version of the Hybrid model - a constitutive model specifically developed for predicting the mechanical deformation behavior of UHMWPE under arbitrary deformation states. The model predictions are compared with experimental data for UHMWPE with 4 different heat treatments, including closslinked UHMWPE (i.e. XLPE).
The title of the document is: Prediction of Multiaxial Mechanical Behavior for Conventional and Highly Crosslinked UHMWPE Using a Hybrid Constitutive Model.
The final version of this draft working paper will be published in Biomaterials.
