Special attention is paid to magnetorheological elastomers which are synthesized from a soft polymeric matrix material with embedded magnetizable particles. Because the particles interact under an applied magnetic load, a coupled magneto-mechanical field problem has to be solved. The mechanical properties of the polymer matrix motivate the consideration of large deformations. We present the balance equations with boundary conditions and an appropriate material model. The corresponding boundary value problems are solved by the Finite-Element-Method. A weak numerical coupling scheme enables the staggered solution of two subproblems, the stationary magnetic and mechanical one. The coupling between both is realized by a surrounding iterative loop.</p>}, number={1}, journal={Technische Mechanik - European Journal of Engineering Mechanics}, author={Spieler, C. and Metsch, P. and Kästner, M. and Ulbricht, V.}, year={2019}, month={Jun.}, pages={39–50} }
