Contents of the Experimental Data file
Hello! To get a model for Shape memory polymer, I need to load data file obtained after DMA test. But there is a point, in such data file I haven't any values of "mean strain" or "strain amplitude", I have only E' and E''. Could you please explain what should I do in this case? The test was conducted with constant frequency (it means temperature-dependent).
When you run a DMA test, the test system always uses a mean strain and a strain amplitude during the test. I recommend that you edit your experimental file so that it contains those values. If you don't know what they were, and you cannot find out, then I would add "fake" data for that info.
I am trying to calibrate an Abaqus material model to some test data I have. However, when I run the calibration photo 24 Hour Petrol Station the ofy I receive the error 'The specified path to abaqus is not valid. Please change the abaqus path in the global preferences dialog'. I have ensured that the Abaqus path is the same as that stated in the instructions and so it points to my abaqus.bat file. Does anyone know what might be the solution to this issue? (I am using a trial license of MCalibration, I don't know if this should make any difference?).
