Description: My presentation aims to report on how computational technologies, computational modeling, and mechatronic technologies have evolved, especially in recent years, in order to facilitate “Industrialized,” data-driven constitutive characterization of materials subjected to complex loads. The desire to be able to predict the behavior of physical systems under complex generalized loading conditions is primarily driven by the need to design and utilize such systems in various areas of human technological endeavors. The means of predicting the behavior of physical systems since Robert Hooke has been generally encapsulated by an approach that seeks to develop a system model within the context of continuum mechanics using hypothesized constitutive models. While these hypothesized constitutive models are based upon theorized laws of physics, observer invariance for example, they are not always successful in accurately reproducing actual (experimentally established) behavior of existing systems. A data-driven approach forgoes hypothesizing material behavior by relying on a database of sampled behavior.
