Through direct comparisons with experiments, Lefèvre et al. (Int. J. Frac. 192:1–23, 2015) have recently confirmed the prevailing belief that the nonlinear elastic properties of rubber play a significant role in the so-called phenomenon of cavitation—that is, the sudden growth of inherent defects in rubber into large enclosed cavities/cracks in response to external stimuli. These comparisons have also made it plain that cavitation in rubber is first and foremost a fracture process that may… CONTINUE READING
