Abstract:

Sound speed measurements were made on 25 polymers at room temperature and on five of these polymers as a function of temperature. On 15 of the polymers, both longitudinal and shear sound speeds were measured. Using these sound speeds and measured densities, the elastic constants of the polymers were calculated.
