Hyperelastic materials are a class of materials that can undergo deformations as large as 40% and sustain zero to negligible plastic deformation. Materials such as rubbers, elastomers, soft tissues, and foams typically exhibit this behavior. In this video we’ll discuss:
What are hyperelastic material models?
Where are they used?
How to calibrate them by curve-fitting them to data in Ansys Workbench.
