This section focuses on material behavior and constitutive models that describe it. It begins with the Continuity and Navier-Stokes equations, proceeds to Hooke's Law and metal plasticity, then Mooney-Rivlin models for quasistatic behavior of rubber, dynamic material tests and dynamic behavior of rubber, and finally, reviews some relationships between rubber properties and tire behavior.
