Abstract

The measurement of thermophysical properties of metal alloys, especially at high temperatures, is difficult because of the reactivity of some alloys. This article reviews the methods available for measurement of thermal and other physical properties for liquid, semi-solid, and solid commercial alloys, including adiabatic calorimetry, modulated calorimetry, Calvet calorimetry, single-pan calorimetry, and drop calorimetry. It describes differential scanning calorimetry and differential temperature analysis for measuring transition temperatures such as phase transformation or glass transition temperatures. The article schematically illustrates the laser flash apparatus for measuring the thermal diffusivity of solids and oscillation viscometer for measurements of the viscosity of metals. A summary of the measurement methods is presented in tables.
