Calibration of Three Network Viscoplastic model
Hi Dr Jorgen,
I am trying to calibrate the Three Network Viscoplastic (TNV) model for an anisotropic thermoplastic composite material system.
I am using the following models for individual networks:
Network A and Network B - Yeoh hyperelasticity with power law flow
Network C - HGOB hyperelasticity
Besides the default upper and lower bounds are there any other constraints that I should put on material parameters while calibrating the model? For example in Three Network Model flow resistance of Network A < that of Network B.
I am trying to understand if these networks are interdependent.
Also, can I use any combination of available models?
Hello, No there are no other constraints that you need to apply. The two networks in this case are independent.
And yes, you can use any combination of available models.
Thank you for the quick response.
