Material Model of Reinforced V-Belt

Dear Mr. Bergstrom,

I have a Question regarding a reinforced v-belt model...

Is it possible to calibrate to a certain tension modulus (Et) and a certain bending modulus (Eb)? (Et = 10 * Eb)

What material model would offer enough freedom?

Would this be implemented in MCalibration? (For use in Ansys)

 

Thanks and BR

Anton Höller

Yes, you can do that. It will require a material model with the freedom to specify the tension, shear, and compression stiffnesses independently. I have implemented such models in both PolyUMod and MCalibration (specifically the PN model and the TNV model). These models can then be used in ANSYS.
