The DMYO-V oscillograph

The dynamic and hysteresis tests compared four natural rubber-based elastomer compounds with different filler ratios and formulations of differing hardnesses ranging from durometer 40A through durometer 70A. Additional tests were run comparing the parameters of the same materials, durometer 40A and durometer 60A, at three different temperatures. These tests were intended to show what happens to mechanical properties as temperatures change.
