Paper Abstract

In this paper, we investigate hyperelastic and viscoelastic model parameters using Global Sensitivity Analysis (GSA). These models are used to characterize the physical response of many soft-elastomers, which are used in a wide variety of smart material applications. Recent research has shown the effectiveness of using fractionalorder calculus operators in modeling the viscoelastic response. The GSA is performed using parameter subset selection (PSS), which quantifies the relative parameter contributions to the linear and nonlinear, fractionalorder viscoelastic models. Calibration has been performed to quantify the model parameter uncertainty; however, this analysis has led to questions regarding parameter sensitivity and whether or not the parameters can be uniquely identified given the available data. By performing GSA we can determine which parameters are most influential in the model, and fix non-influential parameters at a nominal value. The model calibration can then be performed to quantify the uncertainty of the influential parameters.
