In this thesis, the dynamic properties of urethane are found experimentally using a dual-channel FFT analyzer. Urethane samples are cast into cylindrical shapes and are excited by random excitations and their dynamic properties are determined as a function of frequency. These properties of urethane are used to study the vibration of aluminum disks bonded by urethane. Natural frequencies of this structure are measured experimentally by an impact-hammer test. These frequencies are verified theoretically using finite element analysis for which the dynamic properties calculated previously were used.
