Analysis of an O-ring Seal — Lesson 3

O-rings are widely used in sealing applications. They are often made of hyperelastic materials and undergo large changes in shape and size. So simulations involving O-rings often incorporate all the three types of nonlinearities (i.e. material nonlinearity, large deformation and contacts). In this lesson, we will show how to perform an O-ring simulation that incorporates all these nonlinearities.
