Title

Computer Model Validation for Stress-Strain Curves

Abstract

We seek to validate the accuracy of computer models for the stress-strain relationship of a polymer compound by comparing the models with tensile-testing data. We use Bayesian Gaussian processes to find a predicted experimental curve for each temperature and strain rate regime and compare it with the respective computer model through statistical tests and metrics.
