Naming of an "Epsilon Dot Zero" And a "Reference Strain Rate" of J-C Parameters in Abaqus/Explicit


I'm a little bit confused with a naming convention of strain rates of Johnson-Cook plasticity and damage model in Abaqus. In J-C equations there are two parameters:  

  • ε.0 (epsilon dot zero) known as a reference strain rate which has the value of 1 s-1,
  • ε. (epsilon dot) known as the plastic strain rate or the effective strain rate [s-1].

In Abaqus (Edit Material window), there are two parameters with the same(?) name:

Effective strain rate and strain rate in ABAQUS subrotine

Hi there,

would you please tell me how can I use or calculate the effective strain rate or strain rate in ABAQUS subrotine?

 thank you!

Imposing strain

I would like to simulate the response of a metal to a slow strain rate test. So I need to impose the strain.

It is possible to impose strain with abaqus or can we just apply load?

Thank you

A pool filled with non-newtonian fluid

They filled a pool with a mix of cornstarch and water made on a concrete mixer truck. It becomes a non-newtonian fluid. When stress is applied to the liquid it exhibits properties of a solid. Video was recorded at Barcelona, Spain.
