The aims of this work package led by LNE in collaboration with ArianeGroup, CEA, FHWS, JRC, TU Graz, NETZSCH, VINS are (1) to establish a reference facility for the traceable measurement of the thermal diffusivity of solid materials at temperatures up to 3000 °C and (2) to determine the uncertainty budget associated to the thermal diffusivity measurements at highest temperatures.
The work will be split into three tasks:
Bruno Hay (WP leader)
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)
