Simulation with Nonlinear Structural Materials

When the stress in a structure becomes sufficiently large, many materials display nonlinear behaviour. Some materials may exhibit a nonlinear stress-strain response even at very low stress. Material models including elastoplastic, viscoplastic, creep, and hyperelastic require expressions more sophisticated than the linear Hooke's law. This webinar will present applications of nonlinear materials modelling in COMSOL Multiphysics and demonstrate how user-defined materials can be incorporated into a simulation. The webinar will conclude with a 15-minute Q&A session.

Speaker

Dr Robbie Balcombe
COMSOL

Robbie Balcombe graduated from Strathclyde University in 2007 with an MEng in Aero-Mechanical Engineering, and then carried out PhD research in the area of numerical modelling of rolling contact fatigue at Imperial College London in collaboration with SKF. He joined COMSOL as an application engineer in March 2011.
