A review of the present status of Torsional Braid Analysis TBA includes discussion of instrumentation, specimen preparation, theory, and data reduction. The obtained thermomechanical spectra about 1 cps are discussed in terms of advantages which result from the use of small specimens. Applications include structure-property relationships, kinetics of crosslinking, and optimization of thermomechanical behavior in reactive systems. Author
