Hi, I've done a quasi-static sim

Hi, I've done a quasi-static sim

Hi, I've done a quasi-static sim


I've done a quasi-static simulation in my studying, I used aluminum alloy 6,000 series which is not sensitive to the strain rate.

I speed up the load rate until the ratio of kinetic energy to internal energy is less than 5% to maintain the quasi-static condition.

now, I've received the below comment from a referee of the journal I sent my paper to.

Quote (the referee)

The authors mentioned that the material is strain rate insensitive. The discussion of the internal and kinetic energy can be suppressed given the material selected.

I don't understand the exact point of his/her comment, what should i do?

RE: Hi, I've done a quasi-static sim

Maybe ask the person that made the comment?

RE: Hi, I've done a quasi-static sim

Given what you say in the post and the quote you provided, my guess as to the meaning of the quote is:

The discussion in your paper about internal and kinetic energy should be removed (suppressed) because it is not relevant to the material you used for testing.
