perform analyses using hyperelastic materials.

Discuss the characteristics and limitations of hyperelastic material
models.

Develop the finite deformation quantities used to define the strain
energy density functions of hyperelastic materials.

Learn from an example: The deformation in an o-ring subjected to
a pressure shows how the theory relates to the input data required
by Autodesk Simulation Multiphysics.

Some of the most common
applications to model are:
(i) the rubbery behavior of a
polymeric material
 (ii) polymeric foams that can be
subjected to large reversible shape
changes (e.g. a sponge)
 (iii) biological materials

Definition

A hyperelastic material model
derives its stress-strain relationship
from a strain-energy density
function.
Hyperelastic material models are
non-linearly elastic, isotropic, and
strain-rate independent.
Many polymers are nearly
incompressible over small to
moderate stretch values.

 Deciding which hyperelastic material
model to use is not easy.
 Each model contains coefficients which
must be determined by fitting the model
to experimental data.
 The “best” model is the one that best
matches the experimental data over the
stretch range of interest.
 Multiaxial tests are generally required to
obtain a good match between a
particular material model and the
experimental data.

Hyperelastic Models:
Strain Energy Density Functions
• The stress-strain relationship
for a hyperelastic material is
derived from a strain-energy
density function, W.
• The strain-energy density
functions for hyperelastic
materials are defined in terms
of finite deformation quantities
(i.e. Green’s strain, invariants of
the Cauchy-Green deformation
tensor, or principal stretch
ratios).

Principal Stretch Ratios
The principal stretch ratios could be
found by extracting the eigenvalues
of [U] or [V].
This is typically not done since it
would require that the rotation
matrix [R] be found.
Instead it is more customary to find
the square of the principal stretch
ratios by extracting the eigenvalues
of the Cauchy-Green deformation
tensor.

 The von Mises stress is invariant to
hydrostatic stress states. This can be
seen in the figure.

 The top half of the o-ring has
retained its circular shape due to the
contact constraints and the pressure
acting on the surface. In this
distortion free area the von Mises
stress is very low.
 The bottom half of the o-ring is not
constrained by the pressure and
distorts as it is squeezed into the
gland. This distorted area has larger
von Mises stresses.

•
The shear stress in the upper half of
the o-ring is nearly zero. This is due
to the volumetric response in this
area. There is little contribution
from the deviatoric portion of the
constitutive equation.
•
The shear stress is greater in the
lower half where there is more
distortion. The deviatoric portion of
the constitutive equation is playing
a larger role in this area.

 This module has provided an introduction to hyperelastic
materials and has demonstrated how to perform an analysis with
Autodesk Simulation Multiphysics using these material models.
 Hyperelastic materials are used to compute the large
deformation response of nonlinear elastic materials (i.e.
polymers, foams, and biological materials).
 The stress-strain response of hyperelastic materials are defined
by strain energy density functions expressed in terms of finite
deformation variables.
 Autodesk Simulation Multiphysics provides a library of
hyperelastic material models capable of modeling the behavior
of materials over a wide range of stretch.
