This paper presents the theory, experiment setups and solution implementation of Hyperelastic Material Models in Finite Element Analysis to provide the description of material behavior that matches the conditions the product sees in real life. This can be a complex matter because the real life scenario may have the product responding simultaneously to a multiplicity of conditions such as rate, temperature and the environment. Physical testing of elastomers for the purpose of fitting material models in finite element analysis requires experiments like uniaxial tension, biaxial tension, volumetric compression in multiple states of strain under carefully considered loading conditions.
