Experimental Validation of Neo-Hookean Fiber Reinforced Elastic Solids Conference Paper uri icon


  • Copyright © 2018 ASME. There have been various theoretical studies done on anisotropic neo-Hookean models; however, there have been limited experimental validations of these theories. In this study, a silicone/silicone laminate with a fiber volume fraction of 18% has been parameterized. Conventional neo-Hookean models have been modified for compressible in-plane deformations. Two-dimensional deformation limitations and a compressible constraint have been discussed. Material parameters have been calculated for three different anisotropic, neo-Hookean models from the literature.
