In situ multi‐axial loading frame to probe elastomers using X‐ray scattering

Abstract : An in situ tensile-shear loading device has been designed to study elastomer crystallization using synchrotron X‐ray scattering at the Synchrotron Soleil on the DiffAbs beamline. Elastomer tape specimens of thickness 2 mm can be elongated by up to 500% in the longitudinal direction and sheared by up to 200% in the transverse direction. The device is fully automated and plugged into the TANGO control system of the beamline allowing synchronization between acquisition and loading sequences. Experimental results revealing the evolution of crystallization peaks under load are presented for several tension/shear loading sequences.
