Resonant Beam System Development-Past to Present 730259

The purpose of this paper is to show the development of the Dynamic Rubber Test Machine as an engineering and production (quality control) tool from the standpoint of a machine supplier.
Problems encountered in the design, fabrication, preshipment checkout, and installation of equipment into customer's facilities are discussed. Correlation of equipment is explored as it relates to the dynamic spring rate and the damping constant of elastomer products. Certain techniques and hardware adaptations have aided in improving the repeatability of tests of the resonant beam system. The information given is not intended to be all inclusive, but as a report of the work in this field to date.
