Ansys 19, Strain rate effect on material properties

Hello, I want to learn that how I add strain rate effect material properties. 


I have a stress-strain curve for multi-linear hardening. but not only one strain rate, but also I have a different stress-strain rate. 

how I define this style of material properties in Ansys?

For strain rate sensitive material (e.g., steel), often the Johnson Cook (JC) model is used, in explicit dynamics - see the help manual on that.

(Not sure how to use/convert your data into the JC parameters needed in Ansys - perhaps if you look on the internet or if someone else knows)


Also this is of help:

Thank you for your answer.

I have a stress-strain graph. accept melting temperature and ambient temperature constant. i've stress-strain curve and  strain rate, how can I determine the johnson-cook parameters using the data I have.,


I have this one, and also strain rate, may i determine johnson cook parameters. temperatures are constant value.
