Finite Element Analysis on the Large Deformations of Rubber Structure
In this paper, the hyperelastic constitutive theory, the well-know hyperelastic models and the range of uses are introduced. Finite element simulations of the compression tests have been performed with the incompressible Mooney-Rivlin constitutive theory. The choices of parameters in the hyperelastic modeling, the element type, mesh technique and the contact stiffness in the simulation are discussed. The predicted simulation results agree well the experimental data.
