Paper Abstract

Proper finite element modeling of nearly incompressible bonds which are commonly used to mount optics requires special considerations. Modeling difficulties arise due to the geometries of the mounting designs and the incompressible nature of the bonding materials involved in many applications. Therefore, specific methods of modeling must be employed. Such methods of modeling two common bond designs are outlined. Treatment of these modeling methods includes why they are needed, how they are performed, and what their limitations are.
