Hi everybody !
I'm trying to modeling a SMP on Ansys. This kind of polymer can recover his shape after deformation under a stimuli (like temperature). Hence, I would like to know if somebody has some knowledges about this subject.
My problem :
My polymer sample doesn't recover his original shape. Example : a polymer tube deformed with an angle of 60°, should recover his linear shape after an increase of temperature beyond the Tg. Note : I'm using the element type "solid227".
Someone has an idea ?
Thank you very much,
