This 208-page comprehensive reference book handles the basic theory and practice of the dynamic mechanical analysis (DMA) technique. It gives the chemist, engineer, or material scientist a starting point to understand when and where dynamic mechanical analysis can be applied, how it functions, and what are the advantages and limitations of the method. Rheological concepts, stress-strain, data handling, experimental techniques and considerations, and test methods (such as frequency sweeps and time-temperature curves), are described in detail. This is an excellent practical guide for someone with interest in the concepts of stress, strain, rheology, and the determination of the mechanical properties of materials. About the author:
