Using the ANSYS Remeshing Technique for Modeling Packers and Hyperelastic Seals - Presentation
This presentation was given during the 2015 Convergence Webinar Series. Simulation of hyperelastic seals and packers is extremely challenging due to the highly nonlinear nature of the problem (material, contact and large strains). An additional complication is the large distortion of the finite element mesh. In this presentation we will discuss the use of the remeshing technique to handle the large distortion of the mesh, and the method's usefulness for other problems, including metal forming. We will show an example of a packer where the remeshing technique has been successfully used, and will demonstrate the advantage of this method over traditionally used explicit techniques.
