A Comparative Study on the Hyperelastic Constitutive Models for Rubber

This paper presents a novel approach for comparison of constitutive models forrubber. Model parameters are identified by simultaneous fitting of a given data of a set ofhomogeneous experiments (uniaxial tension, equibiaxial tension, and pure shear, Figure 1) bymultiobjective optimization. Using these parameters, fitting error can be calculated. In thisstudy, however, quality of fit parameter, which represents the amount of error normalized bythe data, is calculated for unbiased comparison of models. 40 different constitutive models forrubber-like materials from the literature are compared based on their quality of fit values [1].Among these models, micro-sphere [2] and Alexander’s model [3] gives the best results forsimultaneous fitting. However, some models work in low or moderate stretch levels. The stretchvalues up to which a model performs reasonably good (in terms of quality of fit) is calledvalidity range. It allows ranged comparison of models and provides insight for model selectionin engineering practice. Quality of fit values, validity ranges and errors are presented for all 40models.


A Comparative Study on Two Different Direct Parallel Solution Strategies for Large-Scale Problems
Bahcecioglu, T.; Ozmen, S.; Kurç, Özgür (2009-04-08)
This paper presents a comparative study on two different direct parallel solution strategies for the linear solution of large scale actual finite element models: global and domain-by-domain. The global solution strategy was examined by utilizing the parallel multi-frontal equation solver, MUMPS [1], together with a finite element program. In a similar manner a substructure based parallel solution framework [2] was utilized for investigating the domain-by-domain strategy. Various large-scale structural model...
A Trie-structured Bayesian Model for Unsupervised Morphological Segmentation
Kurfalı, Murathan; Ustun, Ahmet; CAN BUĞLALILAR, BURCU (2017-04-23)
In this paper, we introduce a trie-structured Bayesian model for unsupervised morphological segmentation. We adopt prior information from different sources in the model. We use neural word embeddings to discover words that are morphologically derived from each other and thereby that are semantically similar. We use letter successor variety counts obtained from tries that are built by neural word embeddings. Our results show that using different information sources such as neural word embeddings and letter s...
A parametric modeling study on distributed MEMS transmission lines
Unlu, M; Topalli, K; Demir, S; Aydın Çivi, Hatice Özlem; Koc, S; Akın, Tayfun (2004-10-14)
This paper presents a parametric study of a new model for the distributed MEMS transmission line (DMTL) structures. In this new model, the MEMS bridges which are used as the loading elements of the DMTL structures are represented as low-impedance transmission lines, rather than a lumped CLR circuit. The model also includes LC networks at the transition points from the MEMS bridges to the unloaded parts of the DMTL which are simply high-impedance transmission lines. These LC networks are employed to model th...
A tunable multi-band metamaterial design using micro-split SRR structures
EKMEKÇİ, Evren; TOPALLI, Kagan; Akın, Tayfun; Sayan, Gönül (2009-08-31)
This paper presents the results of a feasibility study for the design of multi-band tunable metamaterials based on the use of micro-split SRR (MSSRR) structures. In this study, we have designed and constructed a conventional split-ring resonator (SRR) unit cell (type A) and two modified SRR unit cells having the same design parameters except that they contain two (type B) or four (type C) additional micro-splits on the outer square ring, along the arm having the main split. Transmission characteristics of t...
Analysis and characterization of an electrostatically actuated in-plane parylene microvalve
Yıldırım, Ender; Külah, Haluk (IOP Publishing, 2011-10-01)
This paper presents analysis and implementation of a simple electrostatic microvalve designed for use in parylene-based lab-on-a-chip devices. The microvalve utilizes an in-plane collapsing diaphragm. To investigate the pull-in behavior of the diaphragm and flow characteristics, a thorough analysis is carried out using the finite element method. Microvalves with different diaphragm radii are fabricated using surface micromachining techniques. Pull-in tests are carried out under the no-flow condition with ai...
