This paper proposes a new numerical model of lead material to predict mechanical properties of isolation and vibration control devices using lead as damping material. Shear and tensile loading tests of lead were carried out to make the numerical model. Shear loading test specimen were constructed from a circumferential lead part welded at the top and bottom to steel flanges. Cyclic stress-strain relations in large strain region were obtained from shear loading test results. The elastic constants and the initial yield stress were given from tensile loading test results. Therefore a numerical model was made using both shear loading and tensile loading test results. Mechanical properties of lead dampers and isolated rubber bearings were simulated using the proposed numerical model via finite element method to show applicability of the model.
