||An overview of the MERL/BHRG international seal life prediction project
||Health and Safety Executive, Library and Information Services, Broad Lane, Sheffield S3 7HQ, United Kingdom, Mar. 1991. 24p. Illus.
||This overview presents a general outline of the work of a project concerned with elastomer seal life prediction; all detailed results and data remain confidential to the project consortium. The work included: a critical review of failure mechanisms and associated factors; determination of basic parameters using test specimens; development of a computer program to apply these results to actual seals; performance tests on seals under carefully controlled conditions. In addition, a Seal Life Prediction Methodology is being compiled to enable the techniques developed to be applied to specific problems in the future.
