fitting of test data to get constants from hyperelastic properties

can any one please tell me which is the software that is used in the below image please see the immage that is attached with the query .


positions available for PhD students, visiting students, or visiting scholars

We have PhD student positions available who are interested in soft tissue biomechanics of the brain. Work will involve developing sophysticated, yet efficient computational models of the human brain to study the mechanisms of brain injury. This work is supported by NIH grants.

In addition, we have openings for visiting students or visiting scholars who have their own funding to stay in the lab. 

Interested applicants please contact: Songbai.Ji [at]

Finding drag and lift coefficients using Ansys APDL and/or fluent?

Basically, I want to find the lift and drag coefficients for a fluid (air) flowing over a prismatic triangular cross-section, any suggestions, where  can I find some tutorials to begin with.

After I get started, I'm interested to find those coefficients for different angles of attack.


Hi friends;

I have three volumes with different materials, I want to define material properties for them in workbench 14, but acp module isn't in it. 

How should I define material properties for every layer from volume? Is any way in workbench14 or I should install workbench 15?

my model in workbench is below:

please help me.


Simulation of surfaces interaction in 2d model in Abaqus

Dear Subscribers 

I am a new abacus user and I am trying to simulate the interaction between two

the surfaces of 2 different parts and materials. Does anybody knows how can I proceed 

in this simulation procedure. With pleasure any answer will be helpful from my work.

Thank you in advance

Toughness due to hysteretic deformation

These fragments of notes are intended for a course on fracture mechanics, but I have always run out of time, and have never managed to go over them in class.  Some of the ideas are mentioned in various parts of the class.  I have also listed refeences and review articles.

The stress intensity factor and Young's Modulus

The stress intensity factor and Young's Modulus 

It is evident that stress intensity factor considered as  the most important factor in fracture mechanics which used for evaluating the stress state near to tip crack . However this factor depends up many parameters (such us normal loading, cracks size and its geometry). my question is as follow

PhD opportunity at the University of Southampton - UK/EU students only

This project is part of a larger effort aiming at designing the next generation of high strain rate tests of materials based on modern ultra-high speed deformation imaging and inverse identification. This project is partly funded by the US Air Force Office of Scientific Research (AFOSR) who have an interest in high strain rate behaviour of carbon fibre polymer matrix composites. The selected candidate will join a group of half a dozen researchers working on similar topics as part of the Photodyn project (

Hi everybody;

I have a meshing model in workbench, I want to open it in APDL ANSYS. How should do this work?

please help me.



cell mechanics

Experimental studies recently performed on single cancer and healthy cells have demonstrated that the former are about 70% softer than the latter, regardless of the cell lines and the measurement technique used for determining the mechanical properties.

coupled heat transfer and mass diffusion



I want to couple heat transfer and mass diffusion in abaqus. Is this possible?

If yes, how?

Simpleware at North Star Imaging 30th Anniversary Symposium, May 11-12 2016

May 11 - 12, 2016 - St. Michael Cinema, St. Michael, MN

This two-day conference will include national and international speakers discussing the latest in Digital Radiography and Computed Tomography systems and technology. Current users of X-ray and Computed Tomography will gain more knowledge to improve their operations. Those new to the X-ray/CT scanning will hear from peers how they utilize the technology within their industry.
