Abstract : The U.S. Army Materials Technology Laboratory has been conducting the annual Sagamore Army Materials Research Conferences sine 1954. The specific purpose of these conferences has been to bring together scientists and engineers form academic institutions, industry, and the Government to explore in depth a subject of importance of the Department of Defense, the Army, and the scientific community. The 32nd Sagamore Conference, titled 'Elastomers and Rubber Technology' has attempted to focus on major Army requirements for elastomers, including improved tank track rubber durability and chemical defense applications. Exploratory polymer synthesis, characterization, elastomeric networks, polymer blends, new commercial developments, tearing and fracture of rubber, dynamic mechanical properties, mathematical modeling, laboratory and field degradation studies, were studies, were discussed at the meeting. This volume provides an important summary for researchers and technologists interested in fundamental aspects of elastomer science, and in elastomers for military applications.
