What are Viscoelastic Materials?
Polymers are viscoelastic materials, meaning that they can act as liquids, the “Visco” portion, and as solids, the “elastic” portion. Description of the viscoelastic properties of materials generally falls within the area called rheology. Determination of the viscoelastic behavior of materials generally occurs through stress/strain and related measurements. Whether a material behaves as a viscous or an elastic material depends on temperature, the particular polymer and its prior treatment, polymer structure, and the particular measurement or conditions applied to the material.
How to Calculate Compressive Strength of Material?
Compressive Strength of Material calculator uses Compressive Strength of Material = Force/Cross Sectional Area to calculate the Compressive Strength of Material, The Compressive Strength of Material formula is the maximum compressive stress that, under a gradually applied load, a given solid material can sustain without fracture. Compressive Strength of Material is denoted by CS symbol.
How to calculate Compressive Strength of Material using this online calculator? To use this online calculator for Compressive Strength of Material, enter Force (F) & Cross Sectional Area (A) and hit the calculate button. Here is how the Compressive Strength of Material calculation can be explained with given input values -> 0.25 = 2.5/10.
