London – UK-based Rubber in Engineering Group (RIEG) is holding an online afternoon technical discussions probing elastomers for high-frequency applications.
Scheduled for 10 Dec at 13:30 UK time, the high-frequency materials webinar is championed by Jaguar Land Rover’s Dr Roly Whear and Trelleborg’s Merryn Hobbs, RIEG announced 27 Nov.
The event will discuss high frequency engineering application of rubber components and methods used to characterise their behaviour.
The free-to-attend event includes the following presentations:
• High frequency isolation of historic buildings - Adam Fox - Mason UK
• High frequency viscoelastic property characterisation using a DMA - Brice Taillet - Merrow Scientific
• A novel apparatus and methodology for the high frequency mechanical characterisation of ultra-soft materials - Aaron Graham - University of Oxford
Furthermore, RIEG is planning its upcoming events for 2022 for which submissions are now being accepted.
On 17 March, RIEG is planning a sustainable elastomers event as part of the online Global Research and Innovation in Plastics Sustainability Conference, which will be held 16-18 March. Those interested in presenting at the event can contact the event champions Dr Sally Beken (KTN) or Dr Joseph Hallett (Birla Carbon) for submissions.
The London-based group is also planning to hold an event on elastomers used in electric vehicles on 17 June. Those interested in presenting at the event can contact the event leaders Dr Julien Ramier (Schlumberger) or Izaak Watson (Martin’s Rubber).
The RIEG is also helping organise and promote the global International Rubber Conference Organisation (IRCO) events.
Set for 27-30 June 2022, the rescheduled IRC2021 will take place in Nuremberg, Germany next year.
In addition, RubberCon 2022 will take place in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia on 6-8 Sept 2022.
Bangalore, India will host the IRC2022 on 24-26 Nov next year, while the RIEG will be hosting RubberCon 2023 in Edinburgh, UK on 10-11 May 2023.
