Product Description

If you've ever wanted to visualize a complicated equation, or understand the behavior of rubber, this sculpture will help you.

It shows the amount of energy that goes into stretching rubber.

The low-point represents unstretched rubber, which holds no stretch energy. All other points represent more interesting stretchings of rubber. You'll find a path drawn on the surface for the common tensile test, a test that stretches a long strip of rubber by gripping it at both ends. You'll also find the equibiaxial test, a test where a disk of rubber is stretched into a larger disk. Every point on the surface of the sculpture represents some uniform deformation. As you stretch a piece of rubber its state sweeps out a path on the sculpture's surface.

It's fun to consider a particular deformation and then imagine what path it follows.
