Bayesian calibration of strength parameters using hydrocode simulations of symmetric impact shock experiments of Al-5083We report that predictive modeling of materials requires accurately parameterized constitutive models. Parameterizing models that describe dynamic strength and plasticity require experimentally probing materials in a variety of strain rate regimes. Some experimental protocols (e.g., plate impact) probe the constitutive response of a material using indirect measures such as free surface velocimetry. Manual efforts to parameterize constitutive models using indirect experimental measures often lead to non-unique optimizations without quantification of parameter uncertainty. This study uses a Bayesian statistical approach to find model parameters and to quantify the uncertainty of the resulting parameters. The technique is demonstrated by parameterizing the Johnson-Cookmore »
In human motion studies, discrete points such as peak or average kinematic values are commonly selected to test hypotheses. The purpose of this study was to describe a functional data analysis and describe the advantages of using functional data analyses when compared with a traditional analysis of variance (ANOVA) approach. Nineteen healthy participants (age: 22 ± 2 yrs, body height: 1.7 ± 0.1 m, body mass: 73 ± 16 kg) walked under two different conditions: control and pain+effusion. Pain+effusion was induced by injection of sterile saline into the joint capsule and hypertonic saline into the infrapatellar fat pad. Sagittal-plane ankle,more »
DOE PAGES offers free public access to the best available full-text version of DOE-affiliated accepted manuscripts or articles after an administrative interval of 12 months. The portal and search engine employ a hybrid model of both centralized and distributed content, with PAGES maintaining a permanent archive of all full text and metadata.
