Theoretical load–deflection relations are given for the four principal modes of deflection of bonded circular rubber bush mountings which are constructed from rectangular blocks of rubber and are sufficiently long so that end effects can be ignored. These relations are applicable to the incompressible neo-Hookean and Mooney materials and are based upon a well-known, exact solution for the bending and stretching of a rectangular block into a circular cylindrical tube. Typical numerical values are tabulated and illustrated graphically.
