Thermal Analyses Applied to Processes for Energy Production and Storage

Lecturer: prof. Rosa Di Maggio

Timetable 2019:

4 - 5 February 2019 (9:00-13:00 / 14:00-18:00) - room 1D

Syllabus: The aim of the course is to introduce the basic techniques of thermal analysis. Their application is illustrated by means of practical examples referred to different materials.

Part 1 (2 credits) 16 hours

Introduction to thermal analysis

  • Evaluation of thermal stability of materials
  • Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC)
  • Differential Thermal Analysis (DTA)
  • Termogravimetric Analysis (TGA)
  • Dynamic Mechanical Thermal Analysis (DMTA) and Dilatometry (DIL)

Final evaluation: for each module the student must pass a final written test.

Part 2 (+ 2 credits) OPTIONAL

Laboratory activity (Di Maggio R., Dr. F. Girardi, 15 hours)

• Student will be asked to propose to one of the teachers an individual laboratory activity, possibly related to its PhD research program.
