Hands-on Workshop: Accurately predict non-linear behavior Rubbers with Finite Element Analysis

November 24 @ 08:45 - 17:00


The “Accurately predict non-linear behavior of Rubbers” Workshop is a free event for anyone dealing with Rubbers, who has beginner or advanced experience in simulation and FEA, but would like to look at extending the scope of the work they do. This workshop is an ideal way to understand what advanced simulation can offer and find out how easy it is to perform a real world non-linear analysis.

In this unique event Simuleon will present their solutions based on the SIMULIA portfolio particularly for usage with SIMULIA Abaqus. Starting with a lecture session covering the essential concepts of advanced simulation for Rubbers, the course also gives the attendees the opportunity with our hands-on workshop, to model advanced phenomena such as permanent deformations, stress-relaxation, creep, impacts and other highly complex events with SIMULIA Abaqus.

For who is this event?

For everybody who reached the limit of what they can do with their existing simulation software, or just simply want to enhance their understanding of FEA simulation for Rubbers. This event is meant for commercial companies in Belgium, The Netherlands or Luxemburg. Suitable for existing Abaqus customers as well as for non-Abaqus customers. Limited seats available (12).

What topics are discussed?

Rubbers are seen more and more often in daily life. Applications range from packaging and consumer goods to more sophisticated scenarios like the medical industry or even vibration damping parts in the automotive industry. Whatever the application or the industry, it is very important to have an accurate material model that  captures  all the necessary behaviour that we want to evaluate to determine whether the product fulfils the necessary requirements. Moreover, the way multiphase materials are manufactured has a very dominant effect on local stiffness and strains in the part and needs to be accounted for in the structural model.

Our first presentation “Predicting non-linear behavior of rubbers with Finite Element Analysis” gives an overview of different material properties that need to be considered and are very often missing in the material description.

The second presentation “Theoretical background of non-linear Analysis“ will give you insights in the possibilities, assumptions and techniques used within non-linear analysis.

The hand-on session, teaches you how to perform non-linear analysis for rubber, by handling tutorials about permanent deformation, extreme deformations, stress-relaxation and creep which you will simulate with SIMULIA Abaqus software yourself under guidance of our Abaqus Application Engineers.
