    • Methodical fitting for mathematical models of rubber-like materials 

      Destrade, Michel; Saccomandi, Giuseppe; Sgura, Ivonne (The Royal Society Publishing, 2017-02-08)
      A great variety of models can describe the nonlinear response of rubber to uniaxial tension. Yet an in-depth understanding of the successive stages of large extension is still lacking. We show that the response can be ...
    • Slight compressibility and sensitivity to changes in Poisson's ratio 

      Destrade, Michel (2012)
      Finite element simulations of rubbers and biological soft tissue usually assume that the material being deformed is slightly compressible. It is shown here that, in shearing deformations, the corresponding normal stress ...
