New Practice for the Determination of Thermal Penetration Depth by Thermal Analysis

1. Scope

The practice describes the determination of penetration depth from thermal conductivity, thermal diffusivity, or thermal effusivity data obtained from other methods.


penetration depth; thermal conductivity; thermal effusivity; thermal diffusivity


Penetration depth, or some multiple thereof, is considered to be the necessary test specimen thickness suitable for surface test methods where radiation is applied at the surface.

The title and scope are in draft form and are under development within this ASTM Committee.
