Join us for this webinar, “Understanding Thermal Expansion” presented by Dr. Kevin Menard.
Thermal expansion is one of the fundamental properties of material. Reported as the coefficient of thermal expansion (CTE), it allows us to match how material will interact when exposed to heating and cooling cycles. This affects products as dissimilar as wine bottle, car engines, medical devices, aerospace components, etc. It’s the main reason people buy thermomechanical analyzers (TMA). We will discuss the reason why free volume is important, how to handle and prepare samples, and how to interpret data.
