Abstract:

The objective of this work is to automate data taking and data reduction on a Rheovibron Dynamic Viscoelastometer. A computer program with the necessary hardware has been developed to control tension on the sample, to monitor power to heaters, to control a temperature scan, and to acquire data on polymeric solids from which temperature dependence of a dynamic modulus and tangent of the loss angle tan delta can be calculated.
