The metal rubber is a kind of material for vibration control. In this paper, experimental research on characteristics of energy dissipation of metal rubber is exploited, and the relation between metal rubber stiffness and the amplitude of relative density and load. The relative between relative density and characteristics of energy dissipation is researched, in the excitation of displacement and load respectively. By comparing variation of the deformation and load with time, we found that the cycle of deformation and load is the same, but the deformation is still lag behind load. The research provided a basis for the application of metal rubber.
