Testing Elastometers for Finite Element Analysis

Physical testing of elastomers for the purpose of fitting material models in finite element analysis often requires experiments in multiple states of strain under carefully considered loading conditions. The material models themselves have limitations and these limitations must be considered when designing experiments. This paper describes the experiments and the loading used to generate useful data based on the simulation objectives and the material model limitations.
