Webinar Session 9: Complex Young’s Modulus of Viscoelastic Polymers

March 22, 2017

Event Description

Polymers are exceptionally complex materials—mechanical properties depend on chemistry, processing, and thermo-mechanical history.  Instrumented indentation testing dramatically simplifies the mechanical characterization of polymers, because samples can be small and minimally prepared.  On bulk materials, values for storage and loss modulus measured by indentation agree well with values measured by dynamic mechanical analysis (DMA).
