Due to the poor mechanical properties of traditional simulation models of the organic light-emitting device (OLED) bending area, this article puts forward a finite element model of 3D bending simulation of the OLED bending area. During the model construction, it is necessary to determine the viscoelastic and hyperelastic mechanical properties, respectively. In order to accurately obtain the stress changes of material deformation during the hyperelasticity determination, a uniaxial tensile test and a shear test were used to obtain data and thus to characterize the hyperelastic properties. In order to measure the viscoelasticity, a stress relaxation test was used to draw the stress relaxation curve, so as to characterize the viscoelastic properties. Then, the plane or axisymmetric stress–strain analysis was achieved, and the material parameters of the 3D model of the OLED bending area were obtained. Finally, the 3D model was applied to the 3D bending of the OLED bending area. Combined with the axisymmetric finite element analysis method, the 3D bending simulation finite element model of the OLED bending area was constructed by dividing the finite element mesh. Experimental results show that the mechanical properties of the proposed model are better than those of traditional OLED bending simulation models. Meanwhile, the proposed model has stronger application advantages.
