At least three invariants are necessary to model the mechanical response of incompressible, transversely isotropic materials
(Springer, 20130418)The modelling of offaxis simple tension experiments on transversely isotropic nonlinearly elastic materials is considered. A testing protocol is proposed where normal force is applied to one edge of a rectangular specimen ... 
Slight compressibility and sensitivity to changes in Poisson's ratio
(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 ...
