Standard Test Method for Thermal Diffusivity of Carbon and Graphite by a Thermal Pulse Method
|Publication Date:||10 April 2000|
|ICS Code (Chemical elements):||71.060.10|
1.1 This test method covers the determination of the thermal diffusivity of carbons and graphite to +5% at temperatures up to 500°C. It requires only a small easily fabricated specimen. Thermal diffusivity values in the range from 0.04 to 2.0 cm /s are readily measurable by this test method; however, for the reason outlined in Section 5, for materials outside this range this test method may require modification.
1.2 This standard may involve hazardous materials, operations, and equipment. This standard does not purport to address all of the safety problems associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
