  • Chapter
  • First Online:
Metallurgy in Space

Part of the book series: The Minerals, Metals & Materials Series ((MMMS))

Abstract

This section gives a short description of ground-based electromagnetic levitation and its technical foundations. In addition, the various diagnostic means for the measurement of the following thermophysical properties of liquid metals and alloys will be described briefly: density, surface tension, self-diffusion coefficient, electrical conductivity, spectral normal emissivity, heat capacity and thermal conductivity.
