This model is unique in its ability to capture large-stretch mechanical behavior with parameters that are connected to the polymer chemistry and can also be easily identified with the important characteristics of the macroscopic stress–stretch response. The microscopic picture consists of two components: a crosslinked network of Langevin chains and an entangled network with chains confined to a nonaffine tube. These represent, respectively, changes in entropy due to thermally averaged chain conformations and changes in entropy due to the magnitude of these conformational fluctuations. A simple analytical form for the strain energy density is obtained using Rubinstein and Panyukov's single-chain description of network behavior. The model only depends on three parameters that together define the initial modulus, extent of strain softening, and the onset of strain hardening. Fits to large stretch data for natural rubber, silicone rubber, VHB 4905 (polyacrylate rubber), and b186 rubber (a carbon black-filled rubber) are presented, and a comparison is made with other similar constitutive models of large-stretch rubber elasticity. We demonstrate that the proposed model provides a complete description of elastomers undergoing large deformations for different applied loading configurations. Moreover, since the strain energy is obtained using a clear set of physical assumptions, this model may be tested and used to interpret the results of computer simulation and experiments on polymers of known microscopic structure.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:creator>Goulbourne, Nakhiah C.</dc:creator> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource=""/> <dc:contributor>Goulbourne, Nakhiah C.</dc:contributor> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <bibo:uri rdf:resource=""/> <dc:contributor>Davidson, Jacob D.</dc:contributor> <dc:rights>terms-of-use</dc:rights> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="">2020-09-22T09:26:54Z</dcterms:available> <dc:date rdf:datatype="">2020-09-22T09:26:54Z</dc:date> <dcterms:issued>2013-08</dcterms:issued> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dcterms:title>A nonaffine network model for elastomers undergoing finite deformations</dcterms:title> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
