Physical property measurements are increasingly required to support component design and process modelling using finite element analysis (FEA) and other computational methods. Inspiratech 2000 Ltd has considerable experience in determining these properties, using state of the art techniques, for metallic and non-metallic materials.
In order to model processes or components operating at elevated temperatures, it is often necessary to determine the following properties as functions of temperature:
- Thermal diffusivity
- Heat capacity
When combined with the room temperature density, these properties can be used to calculate the thermal conductivity as a function of temperature.
