Measurement of Dynamic Mechanical Properties

  • Takayuki Murayama


Measurements of dynamic mechanical properties of viscoelastic materials have been reviewed. The technology for investigating the dynamic mechanical properties of materials has advanced greatly due to new electronic circuits, improved transducers, signal receiving systems, and computerized controlling systems. Some representative instruments and techniques are discussed. Molecular interpretation and effects of structure geometry are also reviewed. In addition, methods of measurement of dynamic properties in gas and liquid media are presented.
