Elastomers are outstanding in their ability to repeatedly endure large deformations, and they are often applied where fatigue performance is a critical consideration. Because the macromolecular structure of elastomers gives rise to a number of unique behaviors, appropriately specialized methods are needed to characterize, analyze, and design for durability. This 3-day course provides the know-how for engineering durable elastomeric components and systems. The course includes live demos of typical behavior.
This workshop is held at the Axel Products facility in Ann Arbor, MI.
