Sir, I have got almost all the data needed to define my specimen in Ansys and I have modelled it as well. Now, I wish to apply a sinusoidal load on the material and show that the strain lags behind the stress.
Also I need to plot the stress-strain hysteresis loop to show the loss. But I cannot figure out how I should apply the sinusoidal load??
If i try to use the harmonic analysis, then Ansys ignores all the non-linearities including the non-linear material rubber. I also tried to do a transient analysis using the function tool to apply load as a sinusoidal function. But I can't understand it???
Plz, i would really appreciate your help.. Thank you!! for everything..
