hi
i m working on some thing like yours.but my analysis fail and my rubber blow up like a bomb and software show error in element formulation. i use 2 parameters MR model.
can you help me to solve this problem?

Hello. Does it fail right at beginning? What kind of elements are you using? Do you have contact? What aspect ratio has your mesh? Is your analysis static, transient? Give me more details

not at the beginning, i set time at the end of load step 1 second and after 0.3 s it fail. I use smart size (fine=1)of element at mesh tool. I define contact between the area of the metal and rubber,and area of rubber itself. i use static analysis.
but when i define same radius of rubber and metal my static analysis solve completely.
where is my fault?
thanks

Usually when my model blows up is from my mesh. Try to make it first coarse, eliminate the contact by putting the bodies in same part and see if that works. There can be many reasons to non convergence. Can you attach a print screen of your model? I dont understand what you mean by defining same radius of rubber and metal.

the middle volume is rubber.the inner radius of it is (0.013)/2 m and outer radius of it is (0.038)/2. two faces of rubber are fix at X and Y direction and define displacement of this areas (-0.07) at Z direction.
radius of solid cylinder is (0.015)/2 and 2 faces area is fix at all DOF.
radius of hole in block is (0.035)/2.two faces of block are fix at X and Y direction and define displacement of this areas (-0.13) at Z direction.
defining same radius of rubber and metal=inner radius of rubber and the solid cylinder are equal and outer radius of rubber and hole of block are equal too.
