Stress Relaxation of a Viscoelastic Tube

Application ID: 4491


This model studies the temperature effects on the viscoelastic stress relaxation in a long thick-walled cylinder. In particular, decay of the stresses under the influence of the temperature field during a period of two hours is studied. A four-term generalized Maxwell model represents the material.

This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
