Abstract : A fundamental thermodynamic theory was developed which is applicable to the class of materials and regimes of excitation intended in the object of the study. An experimental apparatus was designed, constructed and operated for the purpose of measuring the relevant and significant materials properties. A particular material, a room-temperature-vulcanizing rubber, was studied quantitatively in the range 5 to 25 KHz. (Author)
