Elastomers are commonly used in applications which experience repeated impacts by hard abrasive particles at high or moderate strain rates. The goal of the current work is to develop a simple and cost effective methodology involving scratch testing and modeling for capturing the failure and wear behavior of elastomeric materials. The high failure strains as well as the extremely good wear resistance of elastomers make this task a formidable challenge. Modeling of a scratch test, however, seems to be promising in this regard.
