ST7-22.214.171.124 Developing a Rubber Material Model
Upon successful completion of this lesson you will be able to:
Develop rubber material parameters from test data.
Model nonlinear elastic rubber material in real world settings.
Rubber material exhibits nonlinear stress-strain behaviour. Unlike metals, this material nonlinearity does not produce permanent strain after unloading, meaning that the behaviour is elastic in nature. Additionally, rubber exhibits near incompressibility, with Poissons ratio approaching 0.5. Strand7 provides a...
