Hi Brian,

Could you elaborate more on how you defined the non-linear (plastic) behavior of your model? Did you employ the "Multilinear Isotropic Hardening" material model? How did you convert the experimental uniaxial tensile data into stress-strain curve for the model?

Also, could you add a plot on how the experimental force-displacement curve compares to that of the simulation?
