>From "Advanced Mechanics of Materials" by R.D. Cook and W.C. Young,
Density 930 kg/m3; Ultimate Strength in Tension 16 Mpa; Poisson ratio 0.50
1250 kg/m3; 22 Mpa; 0.50
Elastic Moduli on this materials is stress dependant and the stress strain
relation is non linear.
On FEA - FEM work for material nonlinear -large displacements- bahavior I
suggest to use Mooney - Rivlin model.
