Properties in the field of thermal analysis
The development of materials and processes, the construction and operation of machinery and equipment and the construction of structures require the knowledge of material properties. In physics, chemistry and materials science, these properties are described by physical measures. Some of these sizes are also the basis for process control and quality assurance in production.
The thermal analysis enables the precise and rapid determination of the substance sizes and their change depending on the temperature:
Overview of techniques and measurements
The measurements are based on various thermoanalytical methods, in which the relationships between electrical or optical and thermal variables are used.
|Differential thermal analysis||temperature difference|
|Dilatometry||length or volume|
|Thermomechanical analysis||stress, strain|
|Dynamic mechanical analysis||stress, strain, time|
|Electrical conductivity analysis||electrical resistance|
|Evolved-gas analysis||pyrolysis with gas analysis|
|Thermal conductivity analysis||thermal conductivity|
|Thermal diffusivity analysis||thermal diffusivity|
|Thermomagnetic analysis||magnetic susceptibility|
