Title Numerical Simulation and Experimental Validation of the Inflation Test of Latex Balloons Type
Year 2016 Publication Latin American Journal Of Solids And Structures Abbreviated Journal Lat. Am. J. Solids Struct.
Volume 13 Issue 14 Pages 2357-2378
Keywords Inflation test of latex balloons; numerical simulation; experimental verification/validation
Abstract Experiments and modeling aimed at assessing the mechanical response of latex balloons in the inflation test are presented. To this end, the hyperelastic Yeoh material model is firstly characterized via tensile test and, then, used to numerically simulate via finite elements the stress-strain evolution during the inflation test. The numerical pressure-displacement curves are validated with those obtained experimentally. Moreover, this analysis is extended to a biomedical problem of an eyeball under glaucoma conditions.
