This paper presents a novel shear-stiffened elastomer (SSE) fabricated with a mixture of
silicone rubber and silicone oil. A total of four SSE samples were fabricated in this study.
Their mechanical and rheological properties under both steady-state and dynamic loading
conditions were tested with a parallel plate rheometer. The effects of silicone oil composition,
strain amplitude and angular frequency were summarized. When raising the angular frequency
in the dynamic shear test, the storage modulus of conventional silicone rubber shows a small
increasing trend with the frequency. However, if silicone oil is selected to be mixed with
silicone rubber, the storage modulus increases dramatically when the frequency and strain are
both beyond the critical values.
