The main purpose of the work is to present and test the developed web-based tool to identify parameters of rheological equations, whose functionality according to the presented results is comparable to existing desktop applications. The developed web-based application with a user-friendly interface uses selected optimization methods (Powell and Hooke-Jeeves algorithms). Criteria for selecting optimization methods are: robustness and frequent application to identification problems described in literature. Testing the developed application consists of comparing the identified stress-strain curves obtained from mechanical tests using the developed tool and commercial desktop application, and performing efficiency tests for the analyzed examples of rheological equations and optimization methods. For this purpose, two material models were used: a simple Hollomon’s model and a multi-parameter model used for steel, in which the influence of softening during the dynamic recrystallization is insignificant. The presented software is implemented in technologies such as JDK 1.8, Spring Framework and PrimeFaces, and passes the efficiency tests successfully.
