2 Topics Covered Creating rigid and deformable contact boundary conditions Using axisymmetric elements Using Ogden material model Transforming geometries Associating finite elements to geometries Modifying analysis output requests Plotting and graphing the results

3 Problem Description In many applications, a contact between two parts are very critical. For example, the contact pressure between an O-ring and a hatch for a submarine need to be sufficiently large to prevent leakage. The groove and the O-ring need to be designed to provide the specified contact pressure. The ring also needs to survive the maximum loading condition. O-ring Hatch Submarine’s entrance Contact pressure must be sufficiently large to prevent leakage.

4 In this example problem, the analysis of a 3D model of O-ring is simplified using a 2D model. The ring is compressed by the hatch into the groove. An Ogden rubber model is used to model the ring. The hatch and the groove are assumed rigid. We will use Patran to complete the problem description from a given 2D meshed model and analyze it by using Marc.

6 Goal We will determine the contact pressure between an O-ring and a hatch at the closed position. Minimum principal (maximum compressive) stresses will also be investigated to provide information about the survival of the ring.
