Abaqus Rate Dependent Viscoplastic (*RATE DEPENDENT)

Test ID



Tensile experiments are carried out over a range of strain rates ranging into the high speed impact regime. Tests include three stress-strain measurements in the .01-1 /s strain rate range and two high-speed tensile stress-strain curves in the 10-100 /s range covering a total strain rate range of five decades. Poisson's ratio is provided. Material model calibration is provided either to *ELASTIC followed by *PLASTIC,RATE or *PLASTIC, *RATE DEPENDENCY.

Please note that requesting strain rates that would produce test speeds below 1 mm/min may result in additional charges.

Included Tests

1x D-010 Solid Density
2x M-204 Tensile Stress-Strain, Strength, and Modulus
2x M-232 High Speed Tensile Stress-Strain
1x M-206 Tensile Stress-Strain, Strength, Modulus and Poisson's Ratio


Temperature dependence can also be incorporated into this model by ordering the model at multiple temperatures.

-Very High Speed Tensile Stress-Strain test [M-235] for strain rates to 1000 /s


: 40 high speed tensile bars



This model is used in crash, drop testing and impact explicit simulations. It is used to introduce strain rate dependence into the material model.
