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:
however, additional products may be required to completely define and model it. Furthermore, this example may also be defined and modeled using components from the following product combinations:
- COMSOL Multiphysics® and
- Optimization Module and
- either the Acoustics Module, MEMS Module, Multibody Dynamics Module, or Structural Mechanics Module
The combination of COMSOL® products required to model your application depends on several factors and may include boundary conditions, material properties, physics interfaces, and part libraries. Particular functionality may be common to several products. To determine the right combination of products for your modeling needs, review the Specification Chart and make use of a free evaluation license. The COMSOL Sales and Support teams are available for answering any questions you may have regarding this.
