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

Question asked by Guillaume Baysset on Apr 24, 2018



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,
