ACEX 2015 Conference                 9th International Conference on Advanced Computational Engineering and Experimenting, ACE-X 2015, MUNICH-GERMANY

Special Session 7
EXPERIMENTAL INVESTIGATIONS AND MODELLING IN POLYMER MECHANICS: STATE OF THE ART AND FUTURE TRENDS (SS7)

Polymers and polymer components are highly important in industrial applications such as bearings, seals, bonds and coatings. Since these components are used in various areas of engineering, it is obvious that they are exposed to different environmental influences such as mechanical or dynamical stresses, temperature profiles and chemical or biological substances. Furthermore, polymers show viscoelastic effects and a strong temperature dependency. Representative examples are the high-cycle fatigue as a result of the exposure of polymer components to mechanical load collectives, the physical ageing of lacquer coatings, the thermooxidative ageing of elastomeric bearings and bonds in ships and automobiles or the dynamic-thermomechanical behaviour of vibration isolators and tires.
This session will focus amongst others on different ageing effects as well as on new challenges in polymer modelling. Experimental and theoretical researchers are welcome to present their meaningful results and methods.

Topics of the special session include:

  • chemical and physical ageing
  • fatigue
  • viscoelasticity and dynamic-mechanical behaviour
  • crystallisation
  • curing of polymers, bonds and coatings
  • dissipative heating
  • experimental investigations
  • new challenges in polymer modelling
  • numerical treatment and simulation

AREAS

  • shipping, aerospace, aviation, automotive engineering, joints and gaskets, tires
