good mornig, everyone:

It is Friday, finially.. Hope everyone will have a wonderful weekend ahead.

I have a silly question, How many types of experimental data can be added to one Hyper-Elastic material ID in ANSYS?

Say, If i have an Uni-axial experimental data, and a bi-axial experimental data, and a shear data, I can add the three groups of data to ONe Material ID, right? in ANSYS.

Do i have to have at least three groups of data to be able to simulate a Metal re-inforced rubber bearing? becasue even though the deformation is maybe less than 5%, but the rubber will be under some bending.

and Since I have Bending involved, that means for each group of data, Uni-Axial, or Bi-axial, i would need both tension, and compression data right?

And, if I use ANSYS Yeoh model to simulate this metal-reinforced bearing, with these three groups or data, I would have a pretty accurate simulation result, right? or, Would you recommend other models for a bending-of-a-uniform-thickness-plate dominated situation? Will a simpler Mooney Rivlin model be sufficient for an accurate simulation?

Please help me, thanks in advance.

sincerely yours...
