ABQ006 – Abaqus:

Temperature-dependent hyperelastic model

with stress softening


Description

This Test Program is recommended for modeling the temperature effects of rubbers and other polymers that exhibit stress softening, also known as Mullins effect.

Abaqus Keywords

* HYPERELASTIC
* MULLINS EFFECT

Test Program

We recommend the following base tests:

Test ID Description # Temps # Repeats # Test

UT003 – CT/HT

Depending on the complexity of loading or deformation, we may recommend the following additional tests:

Test ID Description # Temps # Repeats # Specimens

PT003 - CT/HT

Planar tension test

Notes

  • Stabilized/pre-conditioned stress softening response will be provided for up to 3 or 4 strain levels, except for VC003.

  • Virgin elastic response will also be provided for all the tests.

  • Suggested testing at 3 temperatures may be revised depending on the range of temperatures of interest and the material.

  • UC003 may provide non-homogeneous stress/strain data. Inverse calibration procedures may be necessary.

  • VC003 is not needed for an incompressible material.

  • Veryst will provide a calibrated material model for the observed response and the material.

  • The resulting set of parameters can be used directly in Abaqus CAE or the input file.

 

Specimen Requirements

  • 10 tensile (dog-bone) specimens

  • 10 planar tension specimens

  • 10 compression cylinder specimens

  • 10 volumetric compression specimens

See description of individual tests for details on specimen geometries. Note that we request extra specimens to ensure a sufficient supply of specimens for valid testing.

Veryst can also assist in molding standard and non-standard test specimens. Please contact us if you are interested in discussing this option.

Additional Validation

Veryst can perform additional validation, depending on the target material and the simulation application, through any of the following tests and component level FE simulation:

  • Impact testing

  • Micro-to-macro indentation responses
