We report on our eeorts to model nonlinear dynamics in elastomers. Our eeorts include the development of computational techniques for simulation studies and for use in inverse or system identiication problems. As a rst step towards the full dynamic case, we present the static inverse problem, with experimental results. We also present results from the simulation of dynamic experiments.
