Dynamic Mechanical Analyzer(DMA)

DMA is a thermal/mechanical analytical instrument used to measure a material’s response (deformation) to a sinusoidal load under a given temperature and/or time.  Common physical properties characterized are glass transition, elasticity and viscosity of solid samples.
