Abstract

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.
