websites with stress-strain curve data for hiper-elastic material models

websites with stress-strain curve data for hiper-elastic material models

(OP)
Hi,

I need to run simulations in ANSYS Workbench with an hiper-elastic material. My question is: How can I get the stress strain curve points for different temperatures for PET? I think there must be some databases online, where it is possible to consult this type of data for different materials. I would like to have the link for those websites. I prefer free websites, but I am willing to pay if I don't get the information I want for free.



I appreciate your help,
Thanks in advance,
AndradeSilva

RE: websites with stress-strain curve data for hiper-elastic material models

What are you making and how? I'm not sure you need a hyper-elastic material model for PET, or that its even appropriate for PET. Pet is fairly stiff, and the elongation is not that great. At least as a first pass, a simple linear elastic or bi-linear isotropic hardening curve should work.

RE: websites with stress-strain curve data for hiper-elastic material models

I agree with Rick, if you want more accuracy you could use a multilinear model to define the material behaviour instead of hyper-elastic which is more propicious for rubber like materials.

Anyway, did you try to find stress-strain data in CampusPlastics? I have found some PET grades there.

White Paper - Considerations for choosing a 3D printing technology
The adoption of 3D printing into major companies’ product development life cycles is a testament to the technology’s incredible benefits to consumers, designers, engineers and manufacturers. While traditional production methods have limitations in manufacturability, 3D printing provides unparalleled design freedom due to the additive method of building parts layer by layer. Download Now
