ABQ010 – Abaqus:

Temperature-dependent linear visco-hyperelastic model

with stress softening 


Description

This Test Program is recommended for modeling the temperature effects of rubbers and other polymers that exhibit the same relaxation behavior over a wide range of deformation, accompanied by stress softening, also known as Mullins effect.

Abaqus Keywords

* HYPERELASTIC

* MULLINS EFFECT

* VISCOELASTIC

* TRS

Notes

  • Stress relaxation from 2 or more strain levels is recommended to determine if a linear viscoelastic model is appropriate for this material.

  • 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 and VC005 are not needed for an incompressible material.

  • Veryst will provide a calibrated material model (either a built-in Abaqus or PolyUMod 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

  • 25 tensile (dog-bone) specimens

  • 10 planar tension specimens

  • 10 compression cylinder specimens

  • 25 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 any necessary component level FE simulation:

  • Impact testing

  • Micro-to-macro indentation responses

  • Compression relaxation tests

  • Cyclic tests with loading/unloading between different strain levels and zero stress level at different rates
