Mechanical behaviour modelization for numerical simulation IFOCA

About the course

In this online courses, we will study the thermo-mechanical behaviour modelization of rubbers. This training objective is to put in perspective the use of common behaviour models compared with targeted industrial needs.


  • Welcome everyone : the preamble of the SPOC
  • General context of the use of finite elements computation

Week 1 : Classification of materials behaviour - Perticular case of the elastomers

  • Reminder about elastomers, particular materials
  • The main behaviour groups
  • Phenomenological aspects of vulcanized elastomers behaviour

Week 2 : Hyper-elasticity

  • Theoretical aspects
  • Modelization of hyper-elastic behaviour of compact and cellular elastomers

Week 3 : Inclusion of time effects - Visco-elasticity

  • Temporal linear visco-elasticity
  • Linear visco-elasticity applied to frequential analysis

Week 4 : Other behaviour laws and simulation example

  • Other behaviour laws
  • Numerical simulation by finite elements examples

General conclusion


This training is adressing to technicians et engineers reponsible of numerical simulations, or of the etablishment of behaviour models for industrial formulations.

This course require basic knowledge in mechanics and mathematics.
