For hyper-elastic materials E(t) depends on both magnitude and direction of straining.
Testing with strips of black and white stocks in the non-linear viscoelastic region has shown that the movement of material is laminar and in the direction of the straining movement.
One of the reasons has been that, along with their desirable properties as rubber reinforcements, the presence of short fibers also results in increased viscoelastic hysteresis (VH) and low fatigue resistance in cyclic straining.
