Comparison of hyperelastic models for rubberlike materials

Dear all,

Infinity asked me for posting more information about one of our papers. It was published in 2006 in Rubber Chemistry and Technology and proposes a comparison and a ranking of 20 different hyperelastic constitutive models for rubber (from the Mooney model (1940) to the micro-sphere model (2004)) in the incompressible case.

The present paper proposes a thorough comparison of twenty hyperelastic models for rubber-like materials. The ability of these models to reproduce different types of loading conditions is analyzed thanks to two classical sets of experimental data. Both material parameters and the stretch range of validity of each model are determined by an efficient fitting procedure. Then, a ranking of these twenty models is established, highlighting new efficient constitutive equations that could advantageously replace well-known models, which are widely used by engineers for finite element simulation of rubber parts.

Here is the link to download the paper:

I am sorry but I can not post nor preprint neither postprint because Rubber Chemistry and Technology does not authorize such posts. So do not hesitate to contact me or my colleague Gilles Marckmann ( to email you the paper.

Dear Erwan,

I appreciate that if you could send yhe full paper to me at

It seems that the SSPH basis functions described
in Computational Mechanics, 41, 527-548, 2008 are easy to use in
meshless methods.


I would be very thankful if you could email me this paper


Thank you.
