Enhance your Understanding of Composite Materials with Thermal Analysis

In this webinar, you will learn:

  • Thermal analysis techniques such as differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), thermogravimetric analysis (TGA), dynamic mechanical analysis (DMA), and thermomechanical analysis (TMA)
  • How these techniques will ensure composite materials meet specifications and perform as expected for the intended application
  • How thermal analysis can be used to characterize composites
  • Case studies of each technique and real-life examples

Understanding Dynamic Mechanical Analysis (Part 1: The Basics)

Dynamic Mechanical Analysis (DMA) is an extremely powerful technique for understanding material properties. Estimated to be 100x more sensitive to the presence of the glass transition than DSC, DMA is commonly used for detecting the Tg in composites and highly cured materials. However, there are many other applications.

This is the first of the two lectures of the "Understanding Dynamic Mechanical Analysis" webinar series. Part 1 addresses the principles of how DMA measures as well as the basic applications like Tg, Tm, Modulus, and Curing. The second lecture looks at the more advanced topics of frequency effects in materials.

Understanding Dynamic Mechanical Analysis (Part 2: Advanced Topics)

Dynamic Mechanical Analysis (DMA) is an extremely powerful technique for understanding material properties. Estimated to be 100x more sensitive to the presence of the glass transition than DSC, DMA is commonly used for detecting the Tg in composites and highly cured materials. However, there are many other applications.

This is the second of the two lectures of the "Understanding Dynamic Mechanical Analysis" webinar series. Part 2 addresses the effects of frequency changes on materials, the use of such effects for understanding the nature of the transition, and methods of frequency scanning. Finally the concept and application of Time-Temperature Superposition will be discussed.

Why did it do that? Problem solving using thermal analysis

Often materials don’t do what we expect. Be it a standard for chromatography or an API, cloudiness or brittleness in molded parts, or differences in mechanical behavior, thermal methods can be used to investigate the source of the problem. Dr. Kevin Menard discusses several examples of how thermal analysis can help understand material misbehavior.

Understanding Thermal Expansion

Thermal expansion is one of the fundamental properties of material. Reported as the coefficient of thermal expansion (CTE), it allows us to match how material will interact when exposed to heating and cooling cycles.

In this webinar we discuss:

  • the reason why free volume is important
  • how to handle and prepare samples
  • how to interpret data
