In general purpose finite element modeling, constitutive relations are vital because they are expected to represent the behavior of a material at different strains, temperatures and strain rates equally well. In order to add to the applicability of a finite element model, therefore, material parameters appearing in constitutive relations need to be identified in a general manner. This paper uses an illustrative example to show how this may be achieved by means of a multi-objective… CONTINUE READING
