Hi there.

At the first point I want to apologize if i didnt place this thread into a proper topic.

I have simply questions. Im just trying to simulate a machining or cutting ( understand cutting as in shredders or crushing machines used as devices for volume reduce of plastic waste) in Abaqus/exp. but im stuck with proper material model. So my question is, which material model should i choose for thermoplastics to simulate cutting ? And what kind of experimental data should i took for that material model with MCalibration software ? And, is it still possible to obtain free version of MCalibration ? Mr. Jorgen is not answering 🙂

Thank you.

With regards Peter.
