The nature of elastomeric material demands the consideration of finite deformations, nonlinear elasticity including damage as well as rate-dependent and rate-independent dissipative properties. While many models accounting for these effects have been refined over time to do better justice to the real behavior of rubber-like materials, the realistic simulation of the elastoplastic characteristics for filled rubber remains challenging.
