Experimental and theoretical analyses of the age-dependent large-strain behavior of Sylgard 184 (10:1) silicone elastomer.

Abstract

The commercial polydimethysiloxane elastomer Sylgard(®) 184 with mixing ratio 10:1 is in wide use for biomedical research or fundamental studies of mechanobiology. In this paper, a comprehensive study of the large strain mechanical behavior of this material under multiaxial monotonic and cyclic loads, and its change during the first 26 days after… (More)
