In the last report,we summarized the researches published from 1950s to 1980s,
Concerning phenomena,theories and models in the fields of carbon black reinforcement of rubbers.In this report,we would like to extract some more works from the reports
published during these 20 years periods.Although these reports do not directly address the reinforcement of carbon black for rubbers,they are quite important,indeed essential,for
understanding the mechanism and mechanics of the reinforcement.
This presentation includes such results as,the stress analysis of rigid particle-filled
system with large deformationFEM and the molecular slippage at the interface of carbon particle and matrix rubber at large extension and high temperature,and more over the volume expansion and the micro voids formation between adjacent carbon particles in the fine carbon black-filled rubbers under extension.
