Various loading rate within one test for calibration

Hi Jorgen,

 

Would MCalibration work with the case where the loading rate varies within one characterization test? For example, first cycle load and unload (to zero force) the sample at loading rate R1, then reload and unload at another loading rate R2. Does MCalibration automatically calculate the loading rate used in the testing process when calibrating rate-dependent material? Thanks!

 

Best,

Weilin

That is NOT a problem for MCalibration. The experimental data does not have to have constant strain rate. What MCalibration does is to use the exact strain history that was used in the experiment.
