Experimental Validation of a Viscoelastic Material Model for Numerical Simulation of the Extrusion Process of Rubber Blends


The dimensioning of injection heads for the extrusion of rubber profiles is exclusively based on empiric knowledge of the non-linear viscoelastic flow behavior of elastomers. Thus, the design of injection heads is carried out with subject to the used rubber blend, whereas the geometry of the appropriate profile is achieved by empiric adaptation of the… (More)
