Inflation of a Spherical Rubber Balloon — Shell and Membrane Version
Application ID: 19465
This version of the balloon inflation example demonstrates how the Shell and Membrane interfaces can be used to model thin structures made of hyperelastic materials.
The example is identical to the Model Library model 'Inflation of a spherical rubber balloon', except that the Membrane and Shell interfaces are used instead of the Solid Mechanics interface.
This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
however, additional products may be required to completely define and model it. Furthermore, this example may also be defined and modeled using components from the following product combinations:
The combination of COMSOL® products required to model your application depends on several factors and may include boundary conditions, material properties, physics interfaces, and part libraries. Particular functionality may be common to several products. To determine the right combination of products for your modeling needs, review the Specification Chart and make use of a free evaluation license. The COMSOL Sales and Support teams are available for answering any questions you may have regarding this.
