Phenomenologicalmodelingofviscouselectrostrictivepolymers

  1. 1. Phenomenological modeling of viscous electrostrictive polymers L. Harish (AM13D025) Group meeting
  2. 2.  Polymers which respond mechanically to electrical input are termed as electro active polymers(EAPs)  Large electric field leads to couloumb forces and it termed as maxwell effect Introduction
  3. 3.  Electrostatic itself is not enough but also to include the viscosity of the polymer to consider time dependent effects.  Large electric field leads to couloumb forces and it termed as maxwell effect. Introduction
  4. 4.  It is an electro-viscoelastic coupled problem including electrostriction and time dependence present in PUelastomers.  It is assumed that the viscosity is related to the deformation of the body but not directly to the electromagnetic field quantities.  Electric loading will make the body deform and there by induces the viscous deformation.  Viscoelastic modeling will be based on a multiplicative split of the deformation. And additive split of the longterm and non- equilibrium viscous contributions of free energy. Introduction
  5. 5.  Deformation gradient is multiplicatively split into its volumetric and isochoric parts Deformation Tensors
  6. 6.  Consider electro static case Electromagnetic field quantities
  7. 7.  The electric field and displacements are governed by Maxwell’s equations. Governing equations
  8. 8.  Material can be described by an energy function and free energy function can be split into separate contributions. Constitutive framework
  9. 9. Constitutive models: Energy expressions  Electric displacements:

  11. 11. Viscosity driving stresses Mandel type referential stress tensor: Referential viscous piola Kirchhoff type stresses:
  12. 12. Viscosity driving stresses
  13. 13. Evolution Equations  Mandel type stresses can conveniently be used to formulate a thermodynamically consistent model.  The format of evolution law considered here resembles an approach commonly used in time dependent plasticity theories.  Considered function or rather potential:

  15. 15. Application to PU elastomer  For viscous strains the power law type evolution law as well as the Bonet model are used.  A good fit to the experimental data can be found by using two viscosity elements and k=1
  16. 16. Application to PU elastomer  For viscous strains the power law type evolution law as well as the Bonet model are used.
