Industrial Problem Solving Using Thermal Analysis Techniques

  • Room: Short Course Office S100C
  • Session Number: SC205
Saturday, February 29, 2020: 8:30 AM - 5:00 PM
Duration:1 Day Course

Speaker(s)

Co-Instructor
Anthony Parker
Principal Scientist
A. A. Parker Consulting, LLC

Description

This course emphasizes the practical applications of thermal analysis techniques in real world problem solving situations (commonly experienced in industrial and academic work environments). A brief background of the most common TA methods will be given; including differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), dynamic mechanical analysis (DMA), thermomechanical analysis (TMA) and thermogravimetric analysis (TGA). Case studies illustrating how these techniques can be collectively used to solve industrial process and product development problems will be presented.
