Abstract

With ever advancing simulation techniques and algorithms being introduced to commercial software, the importance of validation remains a priority. An experimental rig was designed to study the effects of rubber extrusion consisting of a compression testing system and a transparent extrusion barrel, of similar geometry to that used in a forming process. Through visual and numerical comparison, the experimental results would be compared to those obtained through Finite Element Analysis (FEA). To remedy the convergence difficulties of the complexity of the simulation, due to large deformations, a recent Nonlinear Adaptive Remeshing boundary condition was applied to the model.
