An anisotropic model for the Mullins effect in magnetoactive rubber-like materials

M. H. B. M. Shariff and Roger Bustamante

Vol. 11 (2016), No. 5, 559–582
Abstract

An anisotropic phenomenological model is proposed to describe the Mullins phenomena for magnetoactive elastomers. The model is based on the use of direction-dependent damage parameters and a set of spectral invariants presented recently in the literature. The effect of the magnetic field on the Mullins phenomena for simple tension and simple shear is discussed.
