In this article we present a simplified time model of elastic deformation in rubber. The originality of the method is to provide a model with very few degrees of freedom while conserving the frequential, nonlinear and energetic characteristics of the rubber. The energy dissipation of the elastomer is integrated to the structural level of the material by introducing rheological models or fractional derivatives. The representation obtained may be integrated into the complete vehicle models. It may also be applied to the conception and validation phase of an engine or vehicle suspension.
