Stress Relaxation and Recovery Following Applying and Removing Deformation For Different Rubbers

  • Author(s) / Creator(s)
  • Abstract—Viscoelastic materials are commonly used for engineering applications due to their unique and useful properties. Namely, when rubbers are subjected to deformation, then the stress response is not linear but increases or decreases similar to a hyperelastic material. Moreover, the significant part of elastomers is that when the deformation is held constant after loading or unloading, the stress response is to relax or recover, respectively. These transient effects are more obvious when the rubbers are saturated and change with the increasing velocity that the material deforms. In the current work, we experimentally examined the viscoelastic behaviour of two different rubbers subjected to tension for three different speeds.
