Extended Tube Model in Ansys Mechanical

The Extended Tube model is one of the most accurate hyperelastic material models available, but it can be difficult to use if you don’t understand how the material parameters influence the predicted stress-strain response. This article will demonstrate that by example.

Temperature-Dependent TN Model Calibration

This tutorial will demonstrate how to calibrate a temperature-dependent Three Network (TN) material model using MCalibration. The example will use experimental data for a PEEK material that was tested at 4 different temperatures.
