This section focuses on material behavior and constitutive models that describe it. We cover the Navier-Stokes equations, Hooke's Law, Mooney-Rivlin models for quasistatic behavior of rubber, dynamic material tests and dynamic behavior of rubber, and the time-temperature equivalence of rubber. The next-to-last section addresses certain aspects of tire behavior that is dependent on rubber's dynamic material properties. The final section covers metal plasticity.
