Suppose that [E.sup.*.sub.c] can be used to represent elastic modulus of hard coating, which is defined as complex modulus:
This analysis allows separation of the viscoelastic material response to two components of complex modulus: a real part E' [MPa] and an imaginary part E" [MPa].
Adding 5% CR to TLA at a load frequency of 15.9Hz resulted in a twenty five fold increase in the complex modulus whereas the increase was approximately two hundred times at a load frequency of 0.1 Hz.
