Working Group on Characterization of the Dynamic Mechanical Properties of Viscoelastic Polymers

Chair: Michael Mains

Scope: Develop and maintain standards in the area of dynamic properties of viscoelastic polymers including: characterization of dynamic mechanical properties; active measurement procedures; instrument calibration; data processing algorithms; and data reporting formats.  The properties include: complex shear modulus; Young’s modulus; Bulk modulus; Lamé constant, Poisson’s ratio; and frequency-temperature shift functions.  Maintain communication and liaison with related ANSI WGs, relevant US regulatory agencies and relevant ISO standards groups.

Responsible for the following published standards:
