Open Access research that is better understanding work in the global economy...

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the Department of Work, Employment & Organisation based within Strathclyde Business School.

Better understanding the nature of work and labour within the globalised political economy is a focus of the 'Work, Labour & Globalisation Research Group'. This involves researching the effects of new forms of labour, its transnational character and the gendered aspects of contemporary migration. A Scottish perspective is provided by the Scottish Centre for Employment Research (SCER). But the research specialisms of the Department of Work, Employment & Organisation go beyond this to also include front-line service work, leadership, the implications of new technologies at work, regulation of employment relations and workplace innovation.

Abstract

The shape of rubber biaxial tensile specimen and the forms of specimen holding and the specimen holder were discussed. The mechanics characteristics of biaxial rubber tensile was correlated with the rubber fibre direction and loading direction. The rubber hardens or softens along with the load changing. The displacement transmutation percentage and the modulus of 50% maximum displacement are important parameters for biaxial tensile rubber. The failures of biaxial rubber tensile are correlated with the maximum shearing stress.
