Advanced Structural Nonlinearities — Lesson 6

In this lesson, we will simulate the behavior of an o-ring. O-rings are widely used in sealing applications. In this simulation, we will see that all three sources of structural nonlinearities are included:
  1. Large Deformation
  2. Material nonlinearities
  3. Contact
Also, we will show how 2D axisymmetric is realized in the simulation.
