Vibration control materials such as laminated damping steel sheets, high-damping alloys, plastic, or rubber are used extensively in automobiles, electric home appliances, office equipment and other areas, to effectively reduce vibrations.
This system uses the multi-channel signal analyzer SA-02 and offers easy menu-based operation for measuring the frequency response with the center excitation method or cantilever method. The resonance characteristics are then used to determine the loss factor η and Young's modulus E (or shear coefficient G) of the specimen according to the half-power bandwidth method.
Measurement analysis results can be checked with a Nyquist diagram or the frequency response overlay function.
Automatic measurement of the specimen at various temperatures through temperature control of a thermostatic chamber is also supported.
