Description / Abstract:

This Standard defines a procedure for measurement and analysis of the dynamic properties of viscoelastic materials using the single cantilever beam method. The Standard applies to materials used in sound and vibration damping systems operating at frequencies from a fraction of a hertz to about 20 kHz.


The purpose of this Standard is to assist users of this method in setting up the measurement equipment, performing the measurements, and analyzing the resultant data. A further purpose is to promote uniformity in the use of this method.
