Brief Communications


Stress relaxation which occurs on applying a periodic deformation at constant amplitude and infrasonic frequencies to a uniaxially compressed rubber sample is studied experimentally. The application of vibrations during stress relaxation leads to an additional reduction in the relaxing stress. This process is called vibrorelaxation. The extent of the additional reduction in stress during vibrorelaxation increases substantially on raising the content of activating filler in the rubber.
