The stress-strain relationship of rubber materials manifests as hysteresis loops under finite strain. In this paper, some results from applying an integral formulation that encompasses a memory kernel of time and a nonlinear function of the strain to model extensions of rubber rods are presented. Various experimental data loops are studied. In addition, the author presents a graphical user interface that facilitates the modeling process.
