Hydrostatic Creep Data for Rubber Hydrostatic Creep Data for Rubber dcopps (Mechanical) (OP) 21 Apr 15 13:46 I am striking out on a search for my subject here. NASA's Maptis, MatWeb, Google Scholar, and the ASM handbooks, among other places I've checked, have not zeroed in on this. Any ideas? Thanks. RE: Hydrostatic Creep Data for Rubber Pud (Mechanical) 21 Apr 15 15:09 "Elastomer creep data" into Google brought up a lot of links. "Rubber" is a bit of a loose term, I guess. For plastics it's usually "isochronous stress/strain" data - although the availability is very patchy and limited to few manufacturers.

RE: Hydrostatic Creep Data for Rubber Compositepro (Chemical) 21 Apr 15 21:50 I don't think that rubber will creep under purely hydrostatic pressure. RE: Hydrostatic Creep Data for Rubber btrueblood (Mechanical) 21 Apr 15 22:31 I don't think any material will creep under hydrostatic pressure, unless it has a lot of voids or other discontinuities that generate shear stresses. Pure hydrostatic pressure generates no shear stresses. RE: Hydrostatic Creep Data for Rubber acspain (Mechanical) 11 May 15 19:06 What do you want to do with the data? You will most likely need to run the test yourself or have a test lab run it for you. Rubber materials vary, sometimes dramatically. I agree with the previous posts that unless there are voids in your material, I doubt you will see much. In my previous job we would run a hydrodynamic test (volumetric test) to obtain data for material modeling for FEA in place of assuming a poisson's ratio. Good luck.
