Dynamic Characterization

Dynamic characterization involves the application of one or more forces at various frequencies, as a means of determining how the properties of an elastomer or rubber material or component changes in a dynamic environment. Dynamic properties measured can include K*, phase, E*, tan delta, energy, and damping coefficient. Many of these tests incorporate environmental chambers to evaluate how changes in temperature or humidity influence test specimen performance. Test results are typically input into computer models for validation purposes.

MTS offers unmatched solutions for conducting precise, meaningful dynamic characterizations in less time and for less money. With more than four decades of global automotive testing industry expertise working to resolve your testing challenges, you will be equipped with the tools and expertise you need to conduct the most thorough and accurate testing possible under real-world conditions. The MTS dynamic characterization offering comprises:
