This paper studies the competition between electric and mechanical force fields simultaneously applied to a polar elastomer that can lead to electric breakdown. The analysis of the system, performed assuming that the free energy of the elastomer is simply the addition of polarizing and stretching energies leads to the classical “thermodynamic” (in this case “electromechanical”) stability.
