The unique properties of elastomeric materials offer numerous advantages in many engineering applications. Elastomeric units are used as couplings or mountings between rigid components, for example in shock absorbers, vibration insulators, flexible joints, seals and suspensions, etc. However, the complicated nature of the behaviour of such material makes it difficult to accurately predict the performance of these units using finite element modelling, for example. It is imperative that constitutive models accurately capture relevant aspects of mechanical behaviour. The latest developments concerning constitutive modelling of rubber is collected in these Proceedings. Topics included in this volume are, Hyperelastic models, Strength, fracture a fatigue, Dynamic properties a the Fletcher-Gent effect, Micro-mechanical a statistical approaches, Stress softening, iscoelasticity, Filler reinforcement, and Tyres, fibre a cord reinforced rubber.5 CONCLUSIONS The use of the elastomer foam material models in ABAQUS/ EXPLICIT and LS-DYNA has been discussed in this article.
