It is postulated that (A) the material is isotropic, (B) the volume change and hysteresis are negligible, and (C) the shear is proportional to the traction in simple shear in a plane previously deformed, if at all, only by uniform dilatation or contraction. It is deduced that the general strain-energy function, W, has the form

where the λi's are the principal stretches (1+principal extension), G is the modulus of rigidity, and H is a new elastic constant not found in previous theories. The differences between the principal stresses are σi[minus]σii∂ W/∂λi[minus]λi∂ W/∂λi. Calculated forces agree closely with experimental data on soft rubber from 400 percent elongation to 50 percent compression.
