A practical thermal analysis course

  • G. Hakvoort
  • T. E. Hakvoort


A practical Thermal Analysis Course is described, lasting one full week, in which the stuents are performing at least 10 experiments from different kinds, covering a broad range of possible applications. In combination with the elaboration of the experiments a number of lectures is given about the practice of thermal analysis. So a course is obtained, in which the students learn a lot of the possibilities (and impossibilities) of thermal analysis techniques, particularly by experiments, performed by their own.
