Modelling and experimental determination of dynamic material properties of polymeric materials

The aim of the task is to determine the dynamic material properties of various polymer materials in a wide frequency range by testing materials at different temperatures. Within the assignment, it is necessary to: prepare samples for testing, perform DMA tests on a rotary rheometer at different temperatures, compose a master curve under the reference conditions using a frequency-temperature superposition, and compare the results between different polymer materials.

Additionally, it is necessary to use well-known mathematical models for modelling frequency-dependent material properties and to make a comparison between models in order to determine which of the models better predicts the properties.
