Viscoelastic characterization; how to fill experimental gap between solid and liquid techniques

Abstract : Viscoelastic behaviors of polymers from liquid to solid state are investigated with techniques such as dynamic mechanical analysis (DMA) and rheometry. The time-temperature superposition principle permits to build master curves. WLF law can then be identified and implemented in numerical softwares to predict thermomechanical behaviors. Polycarbonate (PC) with a glass transition (Tg) around 150°C is tricky to characterize. DMA is limited as the rigidity drops around Tg and rheometry is delicate as the fluidity is not sufficient under Tg + 40°C. Data are obtained with DMA (tensile loading) for T ≤ Tg and with rheometry (shear loading) for T ≥ Tg +40°C. The aim is to fit them to obtain a master curve and identify a thermo mechanical behavior. The goal is to propose a new procedure combining two experimental techniques totally different and push the limit of their relevance domain.
