LFA - Online Training

Determination of the Thermal Conductivity by Means of LFA

The thermal conductivity of already “well known” or new materials gets increasingly important for scientific research and industry. It is a necessary value for optimization of heating/cooling processes, e.g., casting iron, mold injection of polymers or development of new composite materials.

This training session is mainly addressed to users of NETZSCH LFA instruments; others users are also welcome. The aim of this session is to enable the participants to choose reasonable samples for LFA analyses. Optimization of the measurement parameters is part of the on-line training along with proper handling of the evaluation procedure.
