Hi all,

Im working on modelling the adhesive joint using adhesive soft polymer.

Can anyone here suggest what are suitable damage models for soft polymer.

Thank you,

What FE software are you using?
What adhesive is it?
Are you interested in monotonic loading to failure or cyclic (fatigue) loading?

Hi Dr. Jorgen

Im using Abaqus software.

Im using 3M VHB adhesive (pressure sensitive adhesive types) made from acrylic polymer.

Im interested in monotonic loading.

Currently Im using hyper-elastic model for simulating the hardening behavior.

But for damage model Im not sure.

Thanks
