Drucker's stability check of MCalibration
I have a question regarding the stability check of hyperelastic model in MCalibration.
For example, I chose a neo-hooken material with C10=1 and D1=0.02. In the Drucker's stability check of MCalibration, it is shown that the material model with that particular parameters stable except for the simple shear deformation mode---which is unstable for strains larger than 5.85983e-07.
However, the MCalibration Drucker's stability check is inconsistent with two observations I found.
(1) I set a virtual experiments of simple shear in MCalibration. The stress-strain curve is quite normal which does not show negative stiffness, meaning the simple shear deformation mode is stable.
(2) I also defined the exact same neo-hooken material in ABAQUS and evaluated its stability. The results indicate that the material is stable for all deformation modes.
Do you have any comments? Thanks!
I tried the same test on my computer and it seems to work as expected.
What version of MCalibration are you using?
