Elastomers and Components: Service Life Prediction - by V A Coveney

By V A Coveney

Elastomeric parts are known in engineering. expanding calls for are put on them to resist adverse stipulations equivalent to hot temperature and corrosive environments. those calls for make it tougher to foretell most probably provider existence or enhance layout to make sure their longer-term functionality. this crucial ebook reports the wealth of analysis on knowing fatigue and failure in elastomers, and the way this knowing can be utilized to foretell and expand their provider life.

The first a part of the e-book stories components opting for growing old behaviour corresponding to warmth, corrosive environments, put on and cracking. It additionally discusses the strengths and weaknesses of present provider prediction versions. the second one a part of the ebook specializes in analysing and enhancing the layout and repair lifetime of specific purposes equivalent to O-rings, bearings, springs and valves.

With its special editor and crew of individuals, Elastomers and parts: carrier existence prediction; development and demanding situations is a useful reference for engineers interested by the layout and use of elastomers.

  • Looks on the wealth of analysis on realizing fatigue and failure in elastomers
  • Discusses the strengths and weaknesses of present carrier prediction models
