  • Rubber compression model in Abaqus/CAE-Implicit static loading

    Hello
    I am modeling compression loading on a rubber material fitted on a shaft inside a pipe for a sealing operation. I have employed the 2D axisymmetric modeling and used a tensile test data (that I have at hand currently) for material modeling. Meshed with Hex-dominated mesh type. For some reason, I am getting a convergence error claiming 'too many attempts'. Does anyone have any suggestion on the mathematical models in Abaqus that best suit for such hyperelastic material model? should I apply the total compression load? are the reaction forces and moments, I may get, the total model responses?
    I would appreciate if anyone could provide me with literature with some details on hyperelastic modeling in Abaqus.
    Thanks in advance!
