Hyperelastic, Uniaxial Tensile Test, Silicone Rubber, Ogden Model


This work is based on the experimental and numerical analysis and validation of uniaxial tensile test of Silicone rubber. The purpose of this analysis is to highlight the significance of hyperelastic modelling in the simulation of strain fields. Numerical analysis was performed using commercial FEM package Abaqus. The material behavior was captured using Ogden isotropic hyperelastic constitutive model. In this FEM model both geometric as well as material non-linearity of Silicone rubber is incorporated. The material constants of this model was determined using curve fitting of experimental data with Ogden model and Drucker stability criteria was satisfied. This work will form as the basis for computational validation of experimental data obtained from uniaxial tensile test of similar type of isotropic hyperelastic materials.
