The goal of the present work is to characterise the influence of static prestrain on the elastic and dissipative properties of constrained viscoelastic films. Dynamic mechanical analysis (DMA) technique is considered for measuring the dynamic properties under several static prestrain levels, and a new material constitutive model is presented for characterising the frequency–prestrain dependence of the viscoelastic material. The results indicate that the static prestrain strongly affects the elastic and dissipative properties of the analysed viscoelastic material. The proposed material constitutive model properly describes the frequency–prestrain dependence of the tested viscoelastic material.
