SEMINAR Introduction to Dilatometry Techniques for the Thermal Analysis of Dimensional Change PRESENTER Andrew Gillen WHERE BLD8.G25 DATE Thursday 11th of February 2016 TIME 12.30 -13.30
ABSTRACT Each time a material is exposed to temperature changes - it shows a variation in its dimension. Whether it is in the course of its regular thermal expansion, by passing a phase transition or while it undergoes sintering, the substance will either shrink or elongate.
Dilatometry and Thermomechanical Analysis are the methods of choice for studying length change phenomena of ceramics, glasses, metals, composites, and polymers as well as other construction materials, thus revealing information regarding their thermal behaviour and about process parameters or sintering (and curing) kinetics.
Over the past 60 years, the NETZSCH Group (est. 1873, Germany) has led the world market in this technology, extending its application range from -260°C to 2800°C.This seminar introduces Dilatometry and Thermomechanical Analysis (TMA), including theory and application examples including solids, liquids, thin films from the metals, polymers, ceramics and composites fields.
