Shape memory polymer Tecoflex™ is experimentally investigated by running DMA tests in three distinct deformation modes, uniaxial tension, three-point bending, and simple torsion, using two test rigs, Eplexor 500N of Gabo Qualimeter® and Modular Compact Rheometer MCR-301 of Anton Paar. It is observed that the temperature-dependent storage and loss moduli measured in different deformation modes show certain discrepancies that cannot be easily reconciled.
