Symposium at 178th ACS Rubber Division Technical Meeting in Milwaukee, WI, USA

Symposium at 178th ACS Rubber Division Technical Meeting in Milwaukee, WI, USA

The symposium on Mechanics and Modeling of Rubber was held in conjunction with the ACS Rubber Division 178th Fall Technical Meeting at Milwaukee, WI, USA from 12th – 14th October 2010.

This event was a continuation of the symposium on Engineering Design of Rubber Components, which has been running for several years biannually, most recently organized by Allan Zhong and Hamid Ahmadi for the ACS Rubber division meeting at Louisville, October 2008. The past symposiums were very well received by the rubber material and mechanics community from US and Europe.

The symposium emphasized engineering with elastomers from a mechanics viewpoint. New approaches on modeling constitutive behavior of rubbers, life prediction, aging, applications under seve re or unusual service conditions, friction, wear, environmentally induced degradation, elastomeric composites, simulation and testing of elastomeric components were pertinent.
