ERJ staff report (DS)
London -- Organisers of the one day conference, organised by the Rubber in Engineering Committee of the Polymer Society, part of the Institute of Materials, Mining and Minerals, have issued a final call for papers for the event, scheduled for 30 October 2008. The event will take place at the IOM3 headquarters in London.
The organisers say, "The physical properties of rubbers will change depending on the timescale or the frequency. With an understanding of this time dependent behaviour we can effectively utilise rubbers in applications such as sound and vibration isolation. Papers are invited on all aspects of the time and frequency dependent properties of elastomeric materials." They say the conference will have four main themes:
- Measuring and predicting long term properties such as creep and stress relaxation
- Characterising the dynamic mechanical properties
- High frequency behaviour such as acoustic and ballistic properties
- Applications such as vibration damping
Abstracts of less than 250 words are requested, which should identify all authors including the proposed speaker as well as their affiliations, to Martin Burke at QinetiQ, UK by Today, Thursday, 13th March 2008.
