In order to adequately understand the complicated, anelastic processes governing wave propagation in soils or highly weathered rock it seems desirable first to have available a convenient laboratory material for such propagation studies the frequency dependent rheological parameters of which are known beforehand. A property measurement program has been conducted to determine the complex Young's modulus and the complex shear modulus of a commercially available viscoelastic material over a broad spectral region.
