The Objet PolyJet 3D Printing process provides the ability to print graded materials featuring both stiff and elastomeric polymers. This capability allows for a variety of new design possibilities for additive manufacturing such as living hinges, shock absorbing casings, and integrated gaskets. Such design features typically rely upon the ability of traditional elastomers to experience large and repeated strains without permanent deformation or damage. However, voids and other flaws inherent to… 

Investigating the impact of functionally graded materials on fatigue life of material jetted specimens

In order to examine the fatigue life at the multi-material interface, discrete digital-material gradient steps are compared against the true functional gradients created through voxel-level design and the negative effects of material gradient transitions on fatigue life are demonstrated.

Systematic approach for the characterization of additive manufactured and injection molded short carbon fiber-reinforced polymers under tensile loading

Abstract Material extrusion-based additive manufacturing techniques such as fused deposition modeling or fused filament fabrication are developing from prototyping applications to serial components.

Cut growth and fatigue of rubbers. I. The relationship between cut growth and fatigue

Abstract The relationship between the cut growth and fatigue failure of natural rubber vulcanizates under repeated loading is examined. The cut growth behavior has been investigated using several

Cut growth and fatigue of rubbers. II. Experiments on a noncrystallizing rubber

Tensile fatigue failure of a gum vulcanizate of noncrystallizing SBR can be accounted for by the growth of small flaws initially present in the rubber. Fatigue of crystallizing natural rubber was

Design rules for additive manufacture

Improvements in the technology and increasing demand for more complex geometry products, AM is coming into its own and is now able to manufacture parts that have interlocking features, overlapping and mechanistic properties as well as having to worry about constraints like draft angles and overhanging features.

The mechanical fatigue limit for rubber

Investigations of the dynamic cut growth behavior of vulcanized rubbers indicate that there is a minimum tearing energy at which mechanical rupture of chains occurs. The limiting value is
