Thermal Analysis Standards
ASTM's thermal analysis standards provide the test methods, practices, and terminologies relevant to the execution of thermal analytical techniques. Thermal analysis is a form of analytical technique most commonly used in the branch of materials science where changes in the properties of materials are examined with respect to temperature. Common types include interferometry, thermomechanical and thermophysical analysis, differential scanning calorimetry, and thermogravimetry among others. These thermal analysis standards are instrumental in guiding laboratories and their respective scientists and engineers in the proper procedures to follow when performing these thermal analytical methods.
