Laser Flash Analysis

Determination of the Thermal Diffusivity and Thermal Conductivity on Rubbers by means of Light/Laser Flash Analysis (LFA)

In order to get information about the heat transfer in materials, researchers and engineers have to select from a variety of test methods the most suitable one to characterize the thermophysical properties of substances and configurations of interest. For many material classes including polymers, the flash technique is an ideal choice to master these tasks. […] more...
