Abstract : The classical inflation test for thin rubber disks was used to obtain equibiaxial stress-stretch data for a carbon black filled rubber (TP-14AX). Details of the experimental setup, test procedure, measured data, and material constants obtained from the data are reported. A review of how to use the measured test data with tensile stress-stretch data to obtain the material constants is presented. Complete results (data to material constants) for three test specimens are reported. Elastomers, Inflation tests, Stress-stretch tests.
