Given analytical models and accurate measurement methods, a material analyst will calibrate the analytical model with the experimental data by determining a set of optimal model parameters for the analytical model that replicates the behavior of the material in one or a number of experiments. This requires the analyst to make a set of guiding design assumptions, some of which include applicability of analytical models, calibration parameter bounds, simulation methods, optimization methods, boundary conditions and which experimental data to calibrate the parameters to.

Dashed lines represent approximate, constant strain rate histories. A linear plot (left, a) and a log-linear plot (right, b) are provided for the same rates. 1 Summary of available stress–strain data at approximate strain rate histories Butyl rubber (BR) Approx. strain rate (sÀ1) 200 700 1,400 2,000 Num. histories 4 5 5 4 Polyvinyl chloride (PVC) Vulcanized rubber (VR) Approx. strain rate (sÀ1) 275 700 1,500 2,000 Approx. strain rate (sÀ1) 250 700 1,400 1,800 Num. histories 3 5 5 5 Num. histories 4 3 5 5 To characterize materials at different rates, a striker bar with different initial velocities impacts the incident bar, propagating an elastic stress wave through the length of the bar.
