TL;DR Summary
Looking for the elastic constants for a rubber-like material
Hi,

Looking for the Elastic Constants for any rubber-like material such as Natural Rubber. It can be inorganic or organic. The constants I am looking for take the form of a fourth-rank tensor. I only need the first order elasticities, not the zeroth or higher (not Cij or Cijklmn.. just Cijkl):

Just looking for this in blue box:

I have a pretty thorough reference of inorganic materials from the Materials Project but am looking for something rubber-like.

Even better would be a book or reference I could buy or check out from the library containing Elasticities of various materials including something close to Natural Rubber.

Take care!

Hello! Thank you for your question. The elastic constants for rubber-like materials, including natural rubber, can vary depending on the specific composition and processing of the material. However, there are a few general references that may be helpful in your search:

1. "Elastic Constants and Their Measurement" by P.P. Budnikov (ISBN: 978-0444417903) is a comprehensive book that covers elastic constants for a wide range of materials, including rubber-like materials.

2. The "Handbook of Elastic Properties of Solids, Liquids, and Gases" by L.S. Tsimring (ISBN: 978-0124960800) also contains information on elastic constants for various materials, including rubber-like materials.

3. The "Rubber Handbook" by Werner Hofmann (ISBN: 978-1569902476) may be a good resource for information specifically on natural rubber and its elastic properties.

Additionally, you may want to reach out to universities or research institutions that specialize in rubber materials, as they may have more specific data on elastic constants for natural rubber. I hope this helps and good luck with your research!
