Grahic Jump Location
Relations between the strain-hardening exponent (n), the strength coefficient (K), and the yield stress (Y) obtained from the sample (mild) steel sheets
Grahic Jump Location
The computational results at different setting points associated with the variation of material characteristics for creating metamodels: (a) combined-hardening model and (b) isotropic hardening model. (Note that due to scale the plots look similar but indeed they are different in details)
Grahic Jump Location
The graphical comparison between the experimental and predicted results at the corresponding design points
Grahic Jump Location
The distributions of model predictions associated with uncertainties (the solid curves), the fitted normal distribution (the dashed curves), 95% confidence intervals (the shorter vertical solid lines), and the corresponding experimental results (the taller vertical dashed lines) at the design point (3,30). Note that the results of model 1 (a) show in thicker lines compared to that of model 2 (b).
