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

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,

 

Guillaume
