Constitutive model for cyclic deformation of perfluoroelastomers
- 98 Downloads
Observations are reported in uniaxial cyclic tensile tests with a strain-controlled program on perfluoroelastomer Hyflon MFA. A constitutive model is developed for its viscoplastic response and damage at three-dimensional deformations with finite strains. Adjustable parameters in the stress–strain relations are found by fitting the experimental data. Numerical simulation demonstrates that the constitutive equations adequately describe the mechanical response of perfluoroelastomer in cyclic tests with complicated deformation programs.
