A test procedure is described by which quick measurements of stiffness and damping coefficients of elastomer O-rings can be made for a wide range of the parameters affecting O-ring dynamics. Tests were performed to investigate the effects of squeeze and pressure on the dynamic characteristics of Nitrile (Buna N) and Fluorocarbon (Viton 75) O-rings. Results of these tests are presented and discussed.
