Selection of the optimum conditions for the vulcanization of rubber products, particularly of bulky ones, often is quite difficult. Especially in cases of high demand, it is unavoidable to destruct expensive prototypes in order to check important properties of the rubber at various locations throughout the product. Finite element calculations can be used to predict the flow of heat during the vulcanization process. By converting the total heat input at a selected location during a certain time into a…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
