Thermal analysis

Procedure used to determine the halts in the phase transformation from the cooling or heating curve of a metal, an alloy or a material. The process is used to create phase diagrams and is increasingly being used for process and quality assurance in foundries in order to evaluate the composition, the solidification and transformation morphology and, on the basis of this, to estimate the mechanical/technological properties of the casting which are to be expected.
