    Is it possible to take into account hysteresis for elastomer dynamic study (energy absorption during shock)?

    Guillaume Baysset

      Hello,

       

      I tried to simulate the dynamic response of a mass isolated from vibration by elastomer joint.

       

      Hereafter you can find my model (axisymmetric) :

       

       

      Is there a way to take into account the histeresis for the elastomer? Indeed I need to model it to see how much seals are absorping energy of the acceleration.

       

      Thank you in advance,
