Hyperelastic Material Modelling of Silicone Rubber

Maitreya Narendra Gokhale

Abstract: This research paper presents a comprehensive study on hyperelastic material modelling of silicone rubber. The aim is to evaluate the forces involved in the contact area between silicone extrusions and glass, reducing adhesion. The study investigates the mechanical behavior of silicone rubber through hyperelasticity, utilizing specific material models (e. g. Neo - Hookean, Mooney - Rivlin) for accurate characterization. Experimental data from mechanical tests on silicone rubber samples are collected to calibrate the hyperelastic model and determine its parameters. The proposed model is then validated against independent experimental data to ensure its accuracy in predicting silicone rubber behavior under various loading conditions. This research aims to improve the design of silicone rubber liners for enhanced safety in various applications. The results have potential implications for the design and manufacture of components where silicone rubber is used.
