Abstract: Abstract 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…
