When I create a Strain-Stress load case in MCalibration, I can specify how my specimens have been conditioned (number of cycles, max engineering strain,...). Can you tell me how this information is taken into account when identifying the hyperelastic + viscoelastic law?

I'm working on silicone characterization in uniaxial tension. I'm creating deformation stages with a relaxation time for each one, as recommended here https://polymerfem.com/experimental-testing-for-material-model-calibration-of-a-rubber/

Before performing these steps, I cycle from 0% to the strain value of my last step. So I've entered the conditioning information, but I don't know how it's used in the software.

 

Thank you in advance for your time,
