Abstract : The complex modulus behavior of a viscoelastic material, measured by a dynamic stiffness method, was determined at several low excitation levels, and several temperatures, to illustrate the effect of strain amplitude. The material was found to be linear to strain levels as low as 10 to the minus tenth power m/m. (Author)
