The Publication of Valerian Hirschberg of our Group
"Nonlinear mechanical behavior of elastomers under tension/tension fatigue deformation as determined by Fourier transform" (DOI 10.1007/s00397-021-01310-3 )
was awarded with the Publication Award of the journal "Rheological Acta" in 2022. The award ceremony took take place at the AERC conference 2022, April in Seville (April 27th, 2022).
Justification from the Editorial commitee was:
"This paper extends the well-established techniques of non-linear shear rheology analyzed by Fourier-Transformation (FT-rheology) to the domain of elongation, which broadens the concept and is the logical next step. This new technique in terms of higher harmonic analysis has been shown to detect fatigue in elongation quicker than classical complex moduli, thus giving it not only a fundamental scientific interest but also making it highly relevant for practical applications of hyperelastic materials.”
