Hello all, I am doing a project on Thermoplastic Elastomers. It is in a starting stage, and I would like to find any materials on multi phase elastomeric composites. I tried reading Ponte Castaneda and Lopezs Publications, but it is not clear. Did anyone already worked on the Material Model for Thermplastic Elastomers...If yes, please help me with the Literature...
Constitutive Material Model for Thermoplastic Elastomer
If you look closely at any good model builders work, you will not be able to guess the material from which it was made. This is a combination of well-fitting parts, precise cuts, and good finishing techniques. This said, I will say flat out that I am partial to cardboard as a building material.
Thermoplastic elastomers is a very broad class of materials. Can you be more specific about what material you are interested in?
Also, are you interested in writing your own user-material model? or use a already developed advanced user-material model (like the [URL= https://polymerfem.com/content.php?10-PolyUMod ]PolyUMod [/URL]library), or use one of the built-in material models in your FE software?
A pleasant greetings with your lovely day Mr. Jorgen, as I have search on this material PolyUMod in wiki, theirs so nothing great article had comes out. May I just know who was the Noble person who discover this? this could be a great discussion for me. I love to know about it as soon as possible. Thanks 🙂
