Modelling Rubber and Viscoelasticity with Abaqus Training Course

Who should attend

This training is meant for engineers with current experience on Abaqus.

Course Objective

This course provides a brief overview of finite deformations and the material models used for rubber and resilient foam. Rubber and resilient foam are widely used for a variety of applications, such as seals and gaskets, shock mounts, vibration isolators and tires. The mechanical and chemical properties of these materials allow them to act as excellent seals against moisture, pressure and heat. They also have excellent energy absorption and dissipation capabilities.

The course covers the following topics:

  • Use experimental test data to calculate material constants
  • Check the stability of the Abaqus material model at extreme strains
  • Obtain the best possible material constants from the available test data
  • Select elements for modeling rubber and foams
  • Design an appropriate finite element mesh
  • Model viscoelastic behavior in both the time and frequency domain
  • Use a user subroutine to define the hyperelastic behaviour
