Reaction forces not matching with Test results

  1. Feb 28, 2015 #1

    I am analysing a 3D D shaped Incompressible Neo hookean material in contact with a semi cylinder using Ansys 14.5 APDL. The input values provided are C10=2737674.313898 and mass of D shape geometry to be 8 kg/m. I have converted these values into density and Shear Modulus as required in Ansys 14.5. I want the D shape to deform by 30mm. I have cut down the dimensions using symmetry to reduce the computational costs. The original model was 100 mm x 100 mm x 400 mm. Now it is 50 mm x 100 mm x 100 mm I am able to solve it but the reaction forces are not anywhere close to the experimental value (586N v/s 6KN). Could anyone please look into the code and tell me where I am going wrong confused.gif Please provide with your inputs as soon as possible. The Input file is attached for your reference.

    Thanks in advance smile.gif
