Dr. Jorgen,

I recently got a trial version of MCalibration. So far so good, I just had to upgrade my Abaqus from 6.14-1 to ABAQUS2016. I am in the process of getting the academic license.

My ultimate objective is to study the strain rate and temperature-dependent behavior of my material.

It is so clear to me how to capture the temperature dependence using the PolyUmod AB model since there is no temperature input unlike the equation in the book. Does it mean that I have to calibrate for every temperature?

I am trying to relate the material parameters provided by the MCalibration to those required by the equations in your book so that I can check the accuracy of my VUMAT. Kindly let me know if the parameters relate as given in the attachment.

Importantly, how does the parameter Adk relate?

Thank you very much.

Warm regards,

Melly
