New Developments in the Indentation Modulus Profile Technique
|Date Published||August 23, 2011|
The modulus profiler was developed in 1987 by Gillen, Clough, and Quintana. The technique has a special resolution of about 100 microns. The modulus profiler has been used to study tire aging, durability in mechanical rubber goods and treadwear by Terrill, Lewis and Pannikottu. The technique has quantified modulus changes in small and internal components of rubber products.
