AbstractThe paper presents numerical analysis of block made of three layers: concrete with I-shape rubber pads, space filled with air and concrete with embedded cross rubber pads, respectively. The block is subjected to the dynamic load. To the analysis as rubber the hyperelastic incompressible Zahorski material model was assumed. This material well describes the real material properties in the range of large elastic deformations. Embedded rubber pads provide an additional protection against the transversal dynamic load. ADINA software was utilized to perform numerical analysis of determining the percentage damping factor of rubber-concrete composite in comparison with block made of concrete.
