At present there are the following calls for projects:
If you are interested to call together with the DIK a joint project to life, don't hesitate to contact us!
Elastomer materials are very important for the production of dynamically high loaded, temperatur- and media resistant products. The life time of elastomer products is depending to a great extend on material homogeneity beside their construction and the mechanical load and chemical exposure during use.
This project is motivated by components loaded in service. These real-life loadings are rarely of continuous cyclic constant amplitude nature. In daily use, rubber components are exposed to all kinds of loadings. However, the lifetime of such components is often predicted using fatigue data from simple test pieces which were exposed to continuous cyclic loads with constant amplitude.
