A Nonmonotonous Damage Model to Characterize Mullins and Residual Strain Effects of Rubber Strings Subjected to Transverse Vibrations

Figure 3

Comparison of buna-N rubber strings experimental data with theoretical predictions computed from the average-stretch, full-network model for which Hz, , , , and MPa. (a) Normalized frequency ratio versus stretch; (b) normalized frequency ratio versus the normalized strain intensity ratio (experimental data adapted from [21]). The specimen Shore A hardness reported by the manufacturer is with a density of gr/cm3. Here, the color dots represent the experimental data and the solid and dashed lines represent theoretical results obtained from (29) and (43).
