Webinar Series: Static, Dynamic & Fatigue Characterization Testing

July 9 @ 2:00 pm - July 12 @ 3:00 pm

July 9-12, 2023; 2 p.m. – 3 p.m. ET Daily

Webinar Description: There are several ways to characterize the physical performance of rubber compounds, rubber components or full parts/assemblies. This webinar series seeks to highlight some of the static testing, dynamic testing and fatigue testing options that are available to aid in such characterization. The following topics will be discussed:
• Finite Element Analysis (FEA) Support Testing (testing on rubber, static)
• Fatigue Testing (testing on rubber, fatigue)
• Vibration Testing (testing on sub-assemblies or components, dynamic and fatigue)
• Dynamic Characterization (testing on components or full parts, dynamic)

Price: Free for Members / $199 Non-member
