Survey of Measuring Techniques for the Determination of the Dynamic Moduli

  • K. te Nijenhuis


After a short introduction on the rebound resilience test for rubbers, some attention is paid to the dynamic moduli and to the classification of materials and techniques. Most of the survey concerns the dynamic techniques, whereas it is concluded with a short introduction on wave propagation.
