This paper describes some typical O-Ring failure modes and the root causes behind them. It compares specific failures and provides detailed failure analysis along with steps toward prevention.
An evaluation of more than 500 failure analyses and recommendations how to avoid O-ring failures.
This paper wants to give a guidance for a realistic assessment of the load limits for NBR-, EPDM-, HNBR- and FKM- O-rings.
