Parameter Estimation using Maximum Likelihood

Application ID: 98131

The model shows how to estimate the Young's modulus and Poisson ratio based on a tensile test. The test measures the tensile force and the radial displacement. Typical numerical values of these quantities differ with around 10 orders of magnitude. Using a maximum likelihood strategy together with separate controls for the noise of each type of data allows for elimination of weighting parameters.

This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
