A rheological model of an impedance head is considered and the expression for its mechanical impedance ZH has been derived. The numerical results of the modulus |ZH| and the experimental data were compared. Also, the phase angle dependence of the measuring head Φnum for a given rheological model and the experimental curve Φexp of the Brüel-Kjaer type 8001 impedance head are compared. The presented model of the measuring head impedance was used to determine the impedance for the following mechanical system: beam-measuring head-element joining the head and the sample. The experimental results of the complex modulus of elasticity against frequency for samples of a few polymers: plexiglass, PVC and Razotex B are presented as a verification of the model.
