A long rubber cylinder is pressed between two rigid plates using a maximum imposed displacement of δmax.
Determine the force-deflection response. Figure 201.1 Rubber Cylinder Problem Sketch Material Properties
E = 2.82 MPa
υ = 0.49967
C1 = 0.293 MPa
C2 = 0.177 MPa Geometric Properties
r = 0.2 m
δmax = 0.2 m Analysis Assumptions and Modeling Notes
A plane strain solution is assumed based on the geometry of the problem. Due to geometric and loading symmetry,
the analysis can be performed using one quarter of the cross section. All nodes on the left edge (X = 0) are constrained, UX = 0. All nodes on the top edge (y = 0) are coupled in UY. An imposed displacement of -0.1 m acts
upon the coupled nodes. ANSYS Verification Manual . ANSYS Release 9.0 . 002114 . © SAS IP, Inc. 1–455 VM201
This problem was solved in several ways:
• A 2-D model using HYPER56 with CONTA175 elements • A 3-D model using HYPER58 with CONTA175 elements • A 2-D model using HYPER56 w...
