Elastomers in Transport

29 Jun 2018

Organised by the IOM3 Rubber in Engineering Group

This Afternoon Technical Discussion Meeting (ATDM) will explore the role of elastomers in transportation.

The event is due to start at 2pm. 

The following speakers have been confirmed:

Rubber AntiVibration Mounting Solutions on Off Highway Vehicles by Steve Sewell (Trelleborg AVS)

This talk considers anti-vibration mounting systems used on an off-highway vehicle (digger), and compares the predicted against the measured performance.

Rubber Anti-vibration Mounting Solutions for Electric Vehicles by Rob Wardrop (DTR VMS)

This paper will discuss some of the unique challenges posed for the modelling, mount design and environmental aspects for electric vehicle power-trains compared to the requirements of conventional internal combustion engine vehicles.

Selection and Evaluation of Materials to Meet Requirements of Modern Rail Fire Regulations by Joseph Hallett (Fenner Precision)

Tougher transport regulations, especially relating to passenger safety, coupled with increasing demands from end users, have led to more complex requirements for elastomers in transport applications. In this paper the development of a silicone rubber composite designed to meet these requirements will be described.

Title to be confirmed by Chaoying Wan (Warwick University)
