Volumetric Expansion Coefficient by DMA


Test ID  
D-040

   
Description  
This test measures volumetric thermal expansion coefficient as a function of temperature using a thermomechanical analyzer fitted with quartz dilatometer.     
Data  
Volumetric Thermal Expansion v. temperature are reported. This data appears in Matereality as Volumetric Thermal Expansion.  
Replicates (# of times this test is repeated)  
2  
Samples  
5 - parts, any shape [details]

   

Application
 
This test is useful for materials whose linear coefficient of expansion cannot be easily determined using a linear expansion probe. These materials include irregularly-shaped samples and materials in the liquid or semi-liquid state, where even slight positive loading on the linear expansion probe would tend to cause deformation.
