Abstract: An automotive transmission rubber mount is a device used in automotive systems to cushion the loads transmitted from the vehicle body structure. TM (transmission) rubber mount has been used to support engine in the vertical direction. In this study, the rubber specimens of the transmission mount are tested to obtain the hyperelastic and viscoelastic properties by the static and dynamic test, respectively. Uni-axial tension test, biaxial tension test, and pure shear test are carried out and Mooney-Rivlin constants are obtained from those static tests. Also, the viscoelastic properties such as storage and loss modulus are obtained from dynamic test. Using the static and dynamic test data, the dynamic stiffness of TM rubber mount subjected to static and dynamic load are predicted with finite element analysis. Solutions allow for comparison between FEA and experimental results. It is shown that the predictions of FEA are close to the experimental results.

Abstract: The fatigue analysis and lifetime evaluation are very important in design procedure to assure the safety and reliability of the rubber components. The interest of the fatigue life of rubber components such as the engine mount is increasing according to the extension of warranty period of the automotive components. In this study, the fatigue lifetime prediction methodology of the vulcanized natural rubber was proposed by incorporating the finite element analysis and fatigue damage parameter determined from fatigue tests. Finite element analysis of 3D dumbbell specimen of natural rubber was performed based on a hyper-elastic material model determined from the tension, compression and shear tests. The Green-Lagrange strain at the critical location determined from the finite element analysis was used for evaluating the fatigue damage parameter of the natural rubber. Fatigue tests were performed using the 3D dumbbell specimens with different levels of maximum strain and various load. The basic mechanical properties test and the fatigue test of rubber specimens under the normal and elevated temperature were conducted. Fatigue life curves can be effectively represented by a following single function using the maximum Green-Lagrange strain. Fatigue lives of the natural rubber are predicted by using the fatigue damage parameters at the critical location. Predicted fatigue lives of the engine mount agreed fairly with the experimental fatigue lives a factor of two.

Abstract: An automotive transmission (TM) rubber mount is a device that is used in automotive systems to cushion the loads transmitted from the vehicle body structure. A TM rubber mount is used to support the engine in the vertical direction. However, the dynamic behavior of loaded rubber mount is not yet known to a reasonable degree of accuracy. The relationship between the force applied to a TM rubber mount and the resulting deformation exhibits features of viscoelasticity. Therefore, in this study, viscoelastic properties were measured during ramp-toconstant displacement control tests. A force-displacement relationship for a TM rubber mount is important for multi-body dynamic numerical simulations. Hence, an explicit force-displacement relationship was developed and expressed in terms of a force relaxation function. A method that can be used to determine the force-displacement relationship from experimental data for a TM rubber mount was also developed. Solutions were obtained and the results were compared with experimentally measured force-displacement behavior. The predictions of the proposed forcedisplacement relationship were in very good agreement with the experimental results.

Abstract: We have developed a novel atomic force microscope (AFM) probe as a highly sensitive sensor and an application of the probe into various mechanical tests for characterizing micro/nanostructures. Using MEMS fabrication technique, we have designed and fabricated rhombus-shaped symmetric AFM probe. Adhesion forces between silicon tip and artificial nano-hair structures of cyclic olefin copolymer (COC) and polypropylene (PP) were measured using the probe with a flat tip. The results exhibited the usual characteristics of force-displacement curves of COC and PP nano-hair structures, in which a pull-off force was detected at the point of unloading. The average adhesion forces of the COC and PP hair structures are about 9.48 μN and 10.67 μN, respectively.

Abstract: Flexible printed circuit board (PCB), which is used for folder and slide type cellular phones, consists of flexible copper clad laminate (FCCL) and cover layer. Through it an electric current is applied to liquid crystal display (LCD) from the main board of cellular phone. In thin Cu foils of flexible PCB fatigue cracks due to repeated bending motion generate and propagate, and they cause a short circuit. Fatigue behavior of thin Cu foils being used for flexible PCB must be evaluated and confirmed to resolve this problem. It is based on findings by several researches that the mechanical properties of thin film materials differ from those of their bulk counterparts. Thin film properties have been investigated over the last years; however fatigue behavior of thin films has not yet been studied as thoroughly as monotonic behavior. In this study fatigue properties of thin Cu foils for the application in flexible PCB are obtained. Fatigue testing was performed for two kinds of Cu foils that were made by rolling and electrochemical procedures respectively. Differences of fabrications in fatigue behavior of thin foils were distinguished. Especially for rolled Cu foils, effects of rolling directions in fatigue properties were evaluated.

Abstract: Fatigue life of automotive engine mount insulator made of natural rubber was evaluated. In order to develop an appropriate fatigue damage parameter of the rubber material, a series of displacement controlled fatigue tests was conducted using 3-dimensional dumbbell specimens with different levels of mean displacement. It was shown that the maximum Green-Lagrange strain was a proper damage parameter, taking the mean displacement effects into account. Nonlinear finite element analyses of the rubber engine mount insulator and 3D dumbbell specimen were performed based on a hyper-elastic material model determined from the simple and equi-biaxial tension tests. Fatigue life prediction of the engine mount insulator was made by incorporating the maximum Green-Lagrange strain values, which was evaluated from the finite element analysis and fatigue tests, respectively. Predicted fatigue lives of the engine mount insulator showed a fairly good agreement with the experimental fatigue lives.

Abstract: The reliability, that is long-term quality, requires a different approaching from short-term quality which is used before. As the electronic components are to be easily normalized on the reliability evaluation, many reliability prediction methodologies are used. In this study, integrated reference model of reliability prediction is serviced for existing PRISM and Bellcore which is related on reliability prediction about electronic components, and will service reliability data based on PoF (Physics of Failure) from domestic research center. The constructed frame of reliability evaluation system, which can predict and evaluate reliability of electronic components and MEMS, is designed by using online service of the reliability data accumulated on web. To evaluate proposed system, the reliability evaluation of PCB (Printed Circuits Boards), which is used in NC controller of machine tools, is introduced according to PRISM, the representative reference model of reliability prediction about electronic components based on MIL-HDBK-217F.
