Hi-Trace: E-learning module

E-learning module

E-learning module with five videos on thermal diffusivity measurements by the laser flash method up to 3000 °C, including a good practice guide.

The videos are not preloaded since the largest is around 500MB. Please keep this in mind if you use mobile data.

Fundamentals of the Laser Flash Thermal Diffusivity Measurement

LFA (Laser Flash Analysis) Front Side Measurement

Uncertainty Assessment for Thermal Diffusivity Measurement by Laser Flash Method

Thermal Diffusivity of Materials Using the Laser Flash Method

Basic Workflow of a LFA (Laser Flash Analysis) Measurement


The project will establish new methods for characterising the thermophysical properties of any solid material up to 3000 °C, and launch a network of reference facilities and materials available to industry. By supporting reliable measurement practices, this project will improve the understanding of high-temperature materials and enable industries such as the aeronautics and energy sectors to develop novel and innovative materials)
