Materials can be studied and characterised using a technique called dynamic mechanical analysis, or DMA. It is mainly helpful for researching polymer viscoelastic behaviour. By applying a sinusoidal load and measuring the material’s strain, the complex modulus may be calculated.
This method can be used to find the material’s glass transition temperature as well as to discover transitions corresponding to different molecular motions. The temperature of the sample or the frequency of the stress are frequently adjusted, leading to variations in the complex modulus.
Long molecular chain polymers have special viscoelastic properties that combine the traits of Newtonian fluids with elastic solids.The mechanical characteristics of elastic solids, where stress is proportional to strain in tiny deformations, are described by the classical theory of elasticity.
A fundamental tool for characterising viscoelastic materials, particularly polymers, is dynamic mechanical analysis (DMA). When an oscillatory force is applied to a substance, its response can be calculated, allowing for the determination of the viscosity and stiffness in relation to temperature, time, or frequency.
DMA is a method for characterising a material’s viscoelastic characteristics by putting the sample under a sinusoidal oscillating stress. The distinctive samples are shown in the usual sample response to this stimulation. If the substance responds in phase, it possesses elastic qualities. Viscous qualities appear if the response is dephased or out of phase.
The best method for examining the viscoelastic characteristics of polymers is DMA. In a chamber with a regulated temperature, the sample is mounted. For the complex modulus analysis, a sinusoidal stress is applied to the sample, and the resulting strain is measured.
For the solid materials like films, rods, and scaffolds, DMA is a commonly utilised technology. Holding the sample at a constant stress or strain can be used to measure creep recovery or stress relaxation. By identifying mechanical alterations during a temperature-sweeping test, DMA can also be used to determine transition temperatures such as the glass transition temperature.

The DMA 8000 is versatile and economical. It is perfect for advanced research and routine quality testing in the polymers, composites, pharmaceutical, and food industries thanks to its creative design, high functionality, and flexible operation.
A strong and adaptable alternative, the Humidity Generator and Controller provides the capacity to apply and precisely manage relative humidity to the sample environment in the DMA 8000.
The quartz window that is built into the DMA 8000 standard furnace enables visual observation of the clamping system and sample at any time without affecting the temperature profile or other experimental parameters.
Dynamic Mechanical Analysis (DMA) is a method of testing and related analytical tools that reports modulus and damping, and can be programmed to measure force, stress, strain, frequency, and temperature. It also measures the physical characteristics of solids and polymer melts.
Rheology of solids and Dynamic Mechanical Thermal Analysis (DMTA), which takes into account temperature response, are additional terms for DMA. DMA instruments stress a sample with an oscillating force and record the resulting oscillating response.
The elastic response, such as a sample response that is “in phase” with the applied oscillatory stress, is used to calculate the modulus. The viscous response sample response that is “out of phase” with the oscillatory stress imposed is used to compute damping.
A measurement device called a DMA is used to ascertain the dynamic properties of materials. It analyses the material’s reaction to a dynamic oscillating force by applying it to a sample.
DMA basically determines how five experimental variables temperature, time, frequency, force, and strain change the sample’s properties. Dynamic mechanical analysis in torsion, tension, bending, and compression is performed with unparalleled precision using Anton Paar’s DMA systems.
Whatever DMA needs are, Anton Paar’s DMA systems can be effectively and easily modified to satisfy them. Utilise the systems to dynamically analyse the mechanical properties of melts, solid bars, films, foils, and reactive resins.
