Fifteen papers from the symposium held in Philadelphia, March 1990, examine the uses of thermomechanical analysis and thermodilatometry in materials science, addressing instrumentation, techniques, and applications. Annotation copyright Book News, Inc. Portland, Or.
The special technical publication has been compiled from the 15 presentations at a May 2000 Association symposium in Toronto. They cover the fundamentals of the techniques, its use in curing and chemical reactions, measuring the glass transition and melting by modulated and comparative techniques, g
This is an expanded and revised second edition, presenting accurate and comprehensive information about our leading thermal scientists to current and future generations. In our globalized world, most researchers in thermal analysis do not know each other in person and are not familiar with each other’s achievements. This volume provides the reader with an up-to-date list of the prominent members in this community. The publication contains only living scientists. The selection is based partly on several decades of the editors' personal professional experience and also partly on the opinion of the Regional Editors of the Journal of Thermal Analysis and Calorimetry.
