Dr. Sean Teller spoke about "Methods for Impact Testing of Thermoplastic Elastomers and Elastomers" at the Thermoplastic Elastomers Conference 2018. He discussed the need for high-strain rate testing of elastomers and TPEs, as well as test methods.
Dr. Sean Teller and Dr. Mark Oliver presented at ANTEC 2017. Dr. Teller’s presentation was titled “High Strain Rate Testing and Modeling of Polymers for Use in Finite Element Simulations.” Dr. Oliver’s presentation was titled “Testing and Modeling Anisotropic Failure of Polymeric SLS Materials and Structures.”
Dr. Sean Teller spoke about “A New High Strain-Rate Biaxial Experiment to Validate Constitutive Models for Polymers” and about “Fracture Testing and Cohesive Zone Modeling of Automotive Adhesives” at ASME IMECE.
Dr. Mark Oliver participated in the “Additive Manufacturing: Design, Test, and 3D Print for Production” session at ANTEC 2018, and Dr. Sean Teller participated in the “Engineering Properties and Structure: Innovations in Polyolefins and Plastics” session.
Dr. Stuart Brown spoke about “Modeling and Design of Reinforced Elastomeric Products for Oil and Gas Applications” and “High Strain Rate Testing of Polymers for Impact Simulations,” while Eric Schmitt spoke about “Calibration and Experimental Validation of Advanced Constitutive Models of Polymeric Materials at High Strain Rates.”
