Committee E37 on Thermal Measurements

    Staff Manager: Thomas O'Toole 610-832-9739


    Committee Scope

    The development and application of thermal measurements by the coordination and development of standard test methods, recommended practices, nomenclature, and definitions for thermal measurements in cooperation with other technical committees of the Society and other national and international organizations; cooperation with organizations concerned with the preparation and distribution of standard reference materials; the providing of a forum for the exchange of information; and the stimulation of research and education in the field of thermal measurements.
    Areas of Interest: The principal areas of interest of E37 initially shall include:
    (1) Traditional thermal analytical techniques of thermogravimetry, differential thermal analysis and scanning calorimetry, thermomechanical analysis, evolved gas analysis, and related techniques.
    (2) Measurement of thermophysical properties including thermal conductivity, thermal diffusivity, thermal expansion, energy content, and thermal radiative properties.
