This class aims to con­vey the cur­rent state-of-the-art in cre­at­ing pre­dic­tive mod­els of metal­lic ma­te­ri­als for crash­wor­thi­ness ap­pli­ca­tions.


  1. Re­view of ma­te­r­i­al mod­el­ing & elas­to-plas­tic­i­ty
  2. Prepar­ing ac­cu­rate *MAT_­024 da­ta for the QS and rate-de­pen­dent cas­es
  3. Re­view of fail­ure mod­el­ing from John­son-Cook to GISS­MO
  4. Prepar­ing ac­cu­rate GISS­MO da­ta, plas­tic in­sta­bil­i­ty, lo­cal­iza­tion, non-pro­por­tion­al load­paths, reg­u­lar­iza­tion tech­niques, and dam­age con­cepts
