Dynamic Seals in action.This project funded a PDRA, Dr Lewis Tunicliffe, to examine the viscoelastic behaviour of HNBR elastomer compounds used in dynamic sealing applications in the oil and gas sector. The aim being to create a dataset of properties to accurately model the materials behaviour for use in finite element modelling.
