Gurer, Cigdem (1985) Time dependent and equilibrium stress-strain behavior of rubbers in moderately large deformations. Dissertation (Ph.D.), California Institute of Technology. http://resolver.caltech.edu/CaltechETD:etd-02252004-105813
In this work, time dependent and equilibrium stress-strain properties of elastomeric networks are investigated for moderately large deformation. A two network potential is proposed, which constitutively describes stress-strain behavior at elastic equilibrium. The potential is applied to time dependent deformations thorough a molecular model.
