Calculation of the stress-strain state of axisymmetrical rubber-metal products

  • N. L. Patsko


The use of B-splines of arbitrary order with an arbitrary node pattern is discussed in application to the calculation of rubber elements in combination hinges. The proposed B-spline technology is applicable to the analysis of other problems as well. To achieve high accuracy, it requires considerably fewer parameters than when conventional basis functions in finite-element analysis. Computer results are given for rubber elements in the pressing of single-ring combination hinges and for thick-walled rubber mounts in axial compression.
