Access from EThOS:
Natural rubber is used for a variety of applications and especially in tyres and anti - vibration mounts, because of its superior mechanical properties. The useful (service) life of the rubber can be affected by the presence of flaws introduced during fabrication and by conditions experienced during service. In order to assess and predict the functional life of a natural rubber (NR) engine mount compound, the effect of ageing and the presence of deliberately introduced flaws on the physical and failure properties were determined.
