Manifestations of the Mullins effect in filled elastomers
Fernandes Arruebarrena, Vanessa Auxiliadora (2016) Manifestations of the Mullins effect in filled elastomers. PhD thesis, University of Nottingham.
This work employs five commercial carbon-black filled elastomers made from ethylene-propylene-diene, nitrile, butyl and natural rubber compounds to study different manifestations of the stress-softening phenomenon known as the Mullins effect. The structure of the materials was characterised using density, hardness, thermal analysis and microscopy.
