Abstract. It is well known that the Brusselator model reveals simple oscillations and damped oscillations by the suitable parameters. However there is no chemical reactor system that corresponds to the Brusselator model. We have a good real physical system that corresponds to the Brusselator model under some conditions. The system is a free damped oscillation of soft material and described by an equation of motion. In this paper, we show the relation between the Brusselator model and the physical system. We also estimate the experimental data of the physical system.
