1. Rubber Seal MSC.Marc 2005r2 MSC.Patran 2005r2 Estimated Time for Completion: 30 minutes Experience Level: Lower

2. Topics Covered • Using large displacement large strain analysis • Defining rigid contact boundary condition for translational and rotational motion • Creating multiple step analysis • Using Mooney-Rivlin material model

3. Problem Description • In the design of a door seal, it is important to determine the maximum stresses experienced by the seal when the door is closed. This information can be used to estimate a life of the component under stresses. • The door is assumed rigid compared to the seal. It is first translated without rotation toward the seal 0.3” and then rotated 30 degrees counterclockwise. The seal is made of rubber whose behavior can be modeled using a Mooney-Rivlin model. • We will use Patran to complete the problem description from a given 2D meshed model and analyze it by using Marc.

4. Summary of Model First node is to control translation <0,-0.3,0> Rigid contact with 2 control nodes Second node is to control rotation <0.5236,0,0> Door Deformable contact Material using Mooney-Rivlin model C10 = 80 C01 = 20 Seal Constrain vertical and horizontal directions on all bottom nodes <0,0,>

5. Goal In this Example, we analyze a door seal. The purpose of the analysis is to examine the stresses and deflections created during the closing of a door. The door is considered very stiff relative to the rubber seal and can be modeled using a rigid body.

6. Expected Results Maximum tensile stress is 158 psi. Maximum compressive stress is 176 psi.
