Simulation viscoelastic damper under cyclic loading Abaqus

This example examines the response of a viscoelastic damper under cyclic loading with the damper material modeled as a linear viscoelastic material using a Prony series calibrated to capture the hysteresis response accurately

The model consists of a layer of viscoelastic damping material between two steel plates,The damper dimension is 3.5 inches in the x-direction, and the viscoelastic material and steel plates are each 0.5 inches thick, for a total dimension of 1.5 inches in the y-direction

A sinusoidal time-varying x-direction displacement with an amplitude of 0.25 inches and a frequency of 1 Hz for a period of 10 seconds is applied to the nodes on the top surface

In this example , we use coupled transient temperature-displacement analysis and consider generated heat

The properties of the materials related to heat transfer
