The thermal analysis laboratory houses the School's general-purpose thermal analysis equipment. Special-purpose instruments are also available in several laboratories across campus. Capabilities include thermogravimetric analysis (to 1500° C), differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) to 1500° C, simultaneous TGA/DTA, and dilatometry to 1600° C. Collectively, this equipment is used to measure a material's thermal stability; to monitor melting, crystallization, and glass transitions; and to measure shrinkage and thermal expansion. Students are permitted full access to this equipment.
