Step 1. Read in all experimental data into MCalibration.
Also note that you can select what units MCalibration is using in the MCalibration Options dialog:
If you like you can also specify a target Poisson’s ratio using a “Poisson’s Ratio” load case. I will skip this step in this tutorial. After all load cases have been specified the main MCalibration window should look something like the following:
Step 2. Select the Three Network (TN) model in the Material Model dialog box.
Then click “OK” to select the TN model. Note that the model parameters “thetaHat”, “n”, and “theta0” specify the temperature dependence of the material model. The TN model is unusual in that it uses an equation-based approach to the temperature dependence. A detailed description of the equations are given on this page.
