Recent developments in the modelling of rubber are collated in this volume, including not only stress-strain behaviour and the use of the large strain finite element method for simulation, but also fatigue, fracture, filler reinforcement, dynamic properties and the effects of ageing. The contributions cover applications to specific products, as well as advances in methodology; an index to this volume and the earlier volumes in the series is included.
