Simultaneous Measurement of Torque, Axial Normal Force and Volume Change in the NIST Torsional Dilatometer
Carl R. Schultesiz, G B. McKenna
The NIST Torsional Dilatometer measures simultaneously the torque, axial normal force and volume change in response to a torsional deformation. While the torque is a linear function of the angle of twist per unit of length, the normal force and volume change are effects of geometrical nonlinearities. In stress-relaxation experiments with an epoxy cylinder near its glass transition temperature, the torque and normal force decay monotonically, but the volume change associated with the torsion shows a significant non-monotonic decay at lower temperatures. The measurements are investigated with a series solution for torsion of an elastic, compressible material (Murnagham, F.D. (1951) Finite Deformation of an Elastic Solid Wiley, New York).
