HERTFORD, England (Dec. 7)—Hertford-based Rubber Consultants is seeking partners in a joint industry project to develop an improved hyperelastic model for filled rubber engineering components. The objective of the project—slated to run three years—is to create a model that can replicate the behavior of filled rubber components under repeated cyclic loads, according to Rubber Consultants. Benefits to partners include the opportunity to have their materials and components assessed and compared, and access to Rubber Consultants´ cache of existing materials data, the company said.
