Hi!

I am doing some research on nanocomposite modeling (polyurea+carbon nanotubes) in Abaqus. I evaluated the hyperelastic factors from experimental data (uniaxial load).

Now I would like to model the mullins effect, I tried to use the Abaqus tool but the curve doesn't match (the second cycle loading has the same shape as the first cycle unloading).

Here is my model :

Material :

strain energy potential = Ogden order 3 (mu1=-10.57, mu2=1.71, mu3=21.42,alpha1=3.78, alpha2=4.39, alpha3=-6.87, Di=0)

Mullins effect (r=2, m=1, beta=1)

1 element (3D hybrid C3D8RH)

4 steps :

1 - load1 (displacement control = 150%)

2 - uload1 (stress = 0.0001)

3 - load2 (displacement control= 150%)

4 - uload2 (stress = 0.0001)

Curve : Nominal strain/stress S22

Could explain me why my stress/strain curve does not match the theory?

Thank you!
