Hyperelastic material behaviour

Hyperelastic material behaviour

(OP)
Hi all,

I tried to learn on hyperelastic material, but at first with thk of 10mm, i can only apply 20mm displacement for convergence, otherwise it wont converge...then i change the thickness to 30mm, the behaviour also same..it can only been applie for ux displacement up to 20mm.
