Micromechanics of internal friction stress softening and hysteresis of reinforced rubbers
A recently proposed micro-mechanical model for the stress-strain behavior of filled elastomers has been formulated on the basis of an extended tube model of rubber elasticity that permits a sound molecular-statistic description of bulk polymer networks up to large strains -.
