In collaboration with other researchers contributing to the S3T-RoundRobin eﬀort, this work presents analytical results as generated using the model of Hartl and Lagoudas (Hartl and Lagoudas, 2009; Hartl et al., 2009). The model, which is based on continuum thermodynamics and inspired by experimental ﬁndings, is brieﬂy summarized. Its calibration to the current experimental results is described and predictions generated by the implemented model are compared to the shared data. Some inaccuracies are observed in the uniaxial responses, though good agreement is demonstrated overall, especially with regard to the non-proportional tension-torsion experiments.
