asgm The coefficient of linear thermal expansion can be calculated from these recorded data. This test method uses a smaller specimen and substantially different apparatus than Test Methods E and D Unless effects of moisture are to be studied, use of dry purge gas is recommended and is essential for operation at subambient temperatures. Lateral dimensions shall not exceed 10 mm. Other lengths may be used, but shall be noted in the report.


NOTE 3—It has been found with some materials that this level of? Specimens that do not meet these requirements may result in increased imprecision. Where some heat or mechanical treatment is applied to the specimen prior to test, this should be noted in the report.

NOTE 4—Some materials, particularly composites, may require heat treatment to condition the specimen prior to test to relieve stresses or distortions. Such heat treatment must be included in the report.

The observed expansion must be corrected for the difference in expansion between the specimen holder and probe obtained from a blank run in which no sample or a specimen of the material of construction of the probe is run. NOTE 5—Direct readout of zero position and specimen length using the analyzer sensing element, where available, with a sufficient range has been found to be an accurate means of length determination. Place the specimen temperature sensor in contact with asmt specimen or as near to the specimen as possible.

The refrigerant used for cooling shall not come into direct contact with the specimen. Depending on the compressibility of the specimen and the temperature range to be investigated, a atsm of between 1 and mN 0. E — 06 is adequate.

The actual incremental force, mass, or stress above that required to make contact with astmm force shall be noted in the report. NOTE 6—Normally, the expansion increases with the increase in temperature as shown in the schematic diagram of Fig.

An abrupt change in slope of the expansion curve indicates a transition of the material from one state to another. Other heating rates may be used but shall be noted in the report.

NOTE 7—For best results, specimen temperature gradients should be small. High heating rates, large specimen sizes, and low specimen thermal conductivity may lead to large specimen temperature gradients. The effects of specimen temperature gradients may be compensated for by correction found through the use of w831 reference materials whose size and thermal conductivity are close to that of the test specimen. The measured DL for the specimen should normally be corrected for this instrument baseline, especially for low expansion specimens.


Retest of a specimen may be used only as reference and shall not be treated as an independent test of a new specimen. The awtm shall not be calculated from a temperature range in which a transition point is ast. Precision and Bias 6 Maximum imprecision in the calculated coefficient of linear thermal expansion may be estimated from the imprecisions in the individual measurements by the following equation.
