Paper Abstract

Viscoelastic adhesives are commonly used as vibration damping treatments for mechanical systems. When using these adhesives, knowledge of the shear modulus and loss factor at a given temperature is essential. The standard method for determining shear modulus and loss factor yields values at only a few frequency points for any given temperature. The method presented in this report offers a continuous curve for the two material properties over a broad frequency range.
