A Nonmonotonous Damage Model to Characterize Mullins and Residual Strain Effects of Rubber Strings Subjected to Transverse Vibrations
Comparison of neoprene 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 . The specimen Shore A hardness reported by the manufacturer is with a density of gr/cm3 (experimental data adapted from ). Here, the color dots represent the experimental data and the solid and dashed lines represent theoretical results obtained from (29) and (43).
