hysteretic media, virtual internal bond model, hyperelasticity, LennardJones potential


In this paper, the properties of the hysteretic media are investigated via the virtual internal bond model (VIB) derived from the hyperelasticity with the integration of the 6–12 Lennard-Jones atomic interacting potential.
