Material Model for SABIC CYCOLAC ABS

Introduction - Material Model for ABS

Here is a calibrated non-linear viscoplastic material model for a SABIC CYCOLAC Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (ABS) thermoplastic tested at room temperature.

To use this material model you will need to first install the MCalibration software, and then export the model to your favorite FE software. The calibrated material model is the PolyUMod Three Network (TN) model.
