Mechanical properties identification of rubber is important to predict rubber performance. Identification of rubber mechanical properties is more difficult to do than it is on metals due to hyper-elastic and nonlinear properties of rubber behavior. Mechanical properties of rubber are often expressed as a Strain Energy Function (SEF). This study investigated mechanical properties identification to obtain the SEF data. The rubber analyzed in this study was vulcanized rubber, both hard and soft compound usually used as tire. Analysis of the tensile test results was conducted based on Mooney-Rivlin method to obtain the SEF data. Verification was carried out by entering the SEF data into numerical simulation. Simulation using FE software was constructed as the friction contact between the rubber and its counter-surface. The results show that the values of stress and friction force in the hard compound is slightly greater than that in the soft compound in the same cases. Fluctuating values was obtained along friction commonly seen in rubber friction. In addition, other mechanical properties can be predicted by obtaining the SEF data such as rubber hardness and rubber deformation when subjected to loading. Therefore, the mechanical performance of the rubber can be easily investigated.
