Hyper-elastic material modelling and validation using LS-DYNA

In this project, you will simulate a tensile test on a given dogbone specimen to validate the hyper-elastic material model in LS-DYNA. The experimental stress-strain data is given and is used as an input which defines the uniaxial stress-strain behaviour. understand how to give all boundary conditions for a tensile test and set up an error-free input file for the solver. Finally, run the simulation using this input file using the launch manager. Understand conversions from engineering stress-strain curve to true stress-strain curve and terms like stretch/extension. Post-processing would be carried out in LS-PrePost and simulated results would be compared to validate the material model.
