Abaqus Tutorial 27:

Rubber Seal

This tutorial will show you the capability of Abaqus to solve for contact where an instance gets in contact with itself.

In this example, a rubber seal modelled with a hyperelastic material will undergo an axial compression loading condition enforced through tie constraints with rigid analytical surface. This kinematic constrain is very useful to simulate contact conditions where no movement is allowed between two contacting instances.
