COMPARISON OF CALCULATION AND MEASUREMENT DATA ON VIBRATIONAL CHARACTERISTICS OF PLIABLE COATINGSV. M. Kulik and S. V. Rodyakin UDC 532.526.4:539.3 The experimentally measured complex pliability of a viscoelastic coating is compared with the theoretical calculation carried out on the basis of the measured dynamic elastic modulus and the loss factors of the coating material. The coating thickness was chosen so that the frequency ranges of determination of the viscoelastic properties and of the complex pliability coincide.
