I frequently get asked to explain how to create a PolyUMod TNV model with temperature-dependent thermal expansion. This article explains how.
In many important applications the material response is sufficiently non-linear that simple hyperelasticity or metal plasticity is not good enough. In these cases the PolyUMod library can be very useful since it contains a selection of the most advanced and accurate material models that are currently available. The PolyUMod library is easy to use and can give you a significant competitive advantage!
