I am currently testing an elastomer in uniaixal tension, compression and planar. I plan to use the data for modelling in ABAQUS but I also have to do some tests for the viscoelastic response so I was thinking about doing a creep/relaxation test. Does anyone know if there are specific methods for this or is it simply a normal creep test as you would do with a metal (i.e. apply a step change strain and see how the stress with respect to time looks)
Thanks for any help.
