Title Fatigue, stress, and strain of rubber components : a guide for design engineers / Judson T. Bauman
Published Munich ; Cincinnati : Hanser Publications, ©2008


Description 1 online resource (ix, 214 pages) : illustrations
Summary "The book covers the fatigue testing of specimens, curve fitting of equations to the test data, and the use of such equations in life prediction. Earlier chapters are background in the nature of rubber, history of its usage, brief mention of types of rubber and manufacturing methods. Stress-strain testing and behavior will be covered to the extent relevant to fatigue analysis. Also the text will cover the application of finite element analysis to components to determine high stress points which are vulnerable to fatigue failure." "It will be a very useful reference for practicing engineers charged with responsibility to design structural rubber components where fatigue life is a concern. It will also serve as a text for short courses, or as a supplementary text for a university course in rubber engineering." "The book is aimed at design engineers with a bachelors degree, but with little or no knowledge of rubber behavior. It is aimed at aiding the design engineer in practical service life estimations and testing of rubber materials to that end."--Jacket
