Materials elastic properties characterization service
We offer elastic moduli and damping characterization services at room and high temperatures by the Impulse Excitation Technique (ASTME1876). The elastic moduli comprise the Young’s modulus (E), shear modulus (G) and Poisson’s ratio (ν). The damping corresponds to the internal friction of the material.

Sonelastic® systems for the characterization of elastic modules and the damping of materials at room temperature.
