Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


New anvil apparatus was developed to realize high pressure atmosphere suitable to investigation of viscoelastic behaviors of such soft materials as polymers, lubricants, proteins and so forth. In addition, ultrasonic spectroscopy system was also newly constructed to make quantitative nondestructive evaluation of elasticity and viscosity of soft materials at high pressure. In order to demonstrate the validity and effectiveness of our developed system and methodology for quantitative nondestructive viscoelastic characterization, various silicone oils are employed, and measured spectra are compared to the theoretical results calculated by the three linear element model.
