This course covers materials such as rubber and resilient foam which are commonly modeled as nonlinear elastic. Learn how to model the large-strain elasticity of rubber and foam within Abaqus.


4 sessions

Course Objective:

This course provides a brief overview of finite deformations and the material models used for rubber and resilient foam.

The course covers the following topics:

  • Experimental test data to calculate material constants
  • Stability of the Abaqus material model at extreme strains
  • Elements for modeling rubber and foams
  • Design an appropriate finite element mesh
  • Model viscoelastic behavior in both the time and frequency domain

Who should attend?

Recommended for engineers with experience using Abaqus.
