Experimental Study on Mechanical Properties of Rubber Used for Damping Bearing
After testing on T-type rubber bearing under tensile, compression and shear mechanical properties under different temperature in this paper. Obtained load deflection curve and destructive mode under different loading conditions at -40 and normal temperature of rubber components. Analysis the impact of temperature and the loading conditions that effect on load-elongation and destructive mode of T-type damping rubber structure. It showed that T-end rubber bearing has different kinds of deformation under different force-giving methods. Under compression, the stress pattern of the rubber bearing is three-dimensional and middle rubber bear the greatest force. Under tensile loading, the middle part of the rubber contract and the side with smaller lateral section has greater shrinkage; moreover, damage occurred in the area with stress concentration and weak strength. Under shearing action, extrude faces appeared with crinkle and damage occurred in the middle part of extrude faces. At the low temperature-40 , rubber support still has great elastic properties. The low temperature has a big effect on tensile properties and has little effect on damage properties.
