Abstract:

The torsional modulus of twenty-five rubber compounds and four flexible plastics has been measured as a function of temperature using standard apparatus. Corresponding room temperature tensile properties are also given. A limiting low temperature has been reported for all the materials studied on a torsional modulus of 10,000 psi. The limiting temperatures given by the use of these arbitrary standards fall close to each other for a given material. Author, modified-PL
