hyperelastic or elastic skin model in Abaqus

Dears,  I am quite new in the area of Abaqus models and biomechanics. My background is related with textiles. However I am a post doc in Belgium at the moment and my new task is to model a fingertip skin section under the influence of contact with different objects.

Journal Club Theme of August 2011: Energy Harvesting Using Soft Materials

Energy harvesting is the process of converting energy that will otherwise be dissipated into the ambient environment, into useful energy to do work.  I shall focus this discussion on motion-based energy harvesting.  Motion-based energy harvesting is the process of converting dissipated mechanical energy into electrical energy.  Sources of mechanical energy include the ocean waves, wind, human motion, vehicular traffic, and vibrations in buildings and bridges.  This source of energy is ubiquitous and pervasive, and yet, it is one of the least developed energy harvesting technology.

Deadline is approaction: 10 april - "Risø Int. Symposium: Composite materials for structural performance: towards higher limits"

The deadline for abstract submission for the 32, 10th April 2011, is approaching. The title of the 32nd Risø International Symposium on Materials Science is "Composite materials for structural performance: towards higher limits". The Symposium will be held from Monday 5th September to Friday 9th September 2011 at Risoe DTU - National Laboratory for Sustainable Energy, Technical University of Denmark, 4000 Roskilde, Denmark. We think this is an exciting Symposium theme and we are proud to present a great list of key-note presentations:

Plotting the Johnson-Cook strength model

I'm trying to plot the stress-strain curve described by the Johnson-Cook strength (and eventually damage) models. The strength model is defined as:

σ=[A+Bεn][1+C ln(ε_dot*)][1-T*m]

where A, B, C, n, and m are material constants, ε_dot* is the non-dimensionalized strain rate, and T* is the homologous temperature where T*=(T-T0)/(Tmelt-T0)

To calculate the thermal softening (term in the last bracket of the J-C model), I need to determine the increase in temperature related to an increase in stress (and strain). I'm using the following equation:

Simulating Hole punching operation using MSC Marc

Does anyone who has previously worked on MSC Marc worked with the concept of element activation and deactivation...?

I need to do a simulation wherein a hole is required to be punched in an alloy steel bar.

The issue is that I am not sure as to how to go about this.

If there is anyone who can guide me through this ..I would appreciate it..!!

Regards,

Krunal.

Determination of material Mechanical Properties in ANSYS using Force-Displacement graph obtianed experimentally

Hi all.

I am a doctor course student in Biomechanics in Nagoya University - Japan.

I read a bunch of papers in which the determining the conffecients of hyperelasticty of the skin soft tissue was done by using FE Simulation of an expermiment that can be performed on the skin then TWEAKING (IN FACT ANSYS SUPPOSE TO HAVE AN ITERATIVE MODEULE TO DO THIS) the conffecients so THAT the force-displacement results from the simulation are close enough to the ones obtained from experiment.

NOW:

I have the Experiment results
