General Information


Dynamic Mechanical Thermal Analysis


Experimental hall, FAM lab, Faculty of Aerospace Engineering, Kluyverweg 1, Delft (buidling #41))

Key words:

dynamical mechanical thermal analysis

Main application:

DMTA is used to study the mechanical properties of materials (metals, ceramics and polymers) and give information on modulus, energy dissipation, material stability, Tg, etc. Samples can be studied over a wide temperature range and at a variety of frequencies.

Instrument specification

Instrument type:
Pyris Diamond DMTA (Perkin Elmer)

Temperature range:
-150 ºC to 600ºC (air or inert atmosphere)

Frequency range:
0.001-100 Hz (max 13 frequencies)

Modulus range:
103 to 1012 Pa

Maximum load:
Static +/- 10 N and dynamic +/- 8 N

Automated cooling unit:
liquid nitrogen

Sample requirements:
fiber, film, plaque or composite

Testing modes:
bending, tension, (film)shear, compression and 3 point bending
