This Conference will be the 21st in a series of very successful conferences on Thermophysical Properties held in Europe since 1968.
The 21st conference is organized by the Institute of Experimental Physics at the TU Graz, Austria, and will take place in the Physics building, postal address Petersgasse 16, 8010 Graz.
The objective of the conference is to provide a forum for academic and industrial researchers to meet and exchange valuable experiences in the field of thermophysical properties for a wide variety of systems covering fluids and solids. The conference will concentrate mainly on measurement, theory and modeling of the following properties and materials.
Properties: thermal conductivity, diffusivity, electrical conductivity, viscosity and nonNewtonian properties, mass-diffusion and thermodiffusion, optical and radiative properties including emissivity, reflectivity and absorptivity, solubility, phase equilibrium including liquid - solid, calorimetric and volumetric properties, speed of sound, interfacial properties including solid-solid and wettability, …
Materials: metals and alloys, ceramics, glasses, composites, multi-functional materials, superconductors, insulation materials, porous materials, granular and thin-film materials, foams, gels, emulsions, soft materials, nano-materials, near critical and super critical fluids, polymers, food and biomaterials, environmentally friendly fluids, aqueous systems, petroleum fluids, ionic liquids, molten salts,…
Special focus on: measuring techniques (including methodology of data evaluation and prediction) and engineering applications (polymerization, casting, sintering, plasma spraying, distillation, refrigerant techniques, thermoelectric cooling, insulation structures in civil engineering, …), standard data and standard substances.
This conference will include plenary and invited lectures, oral presentations, poster sessions and discussion sessions on specialized topics. The ECTP Award for Lifetime Achievements, as well as the NETZSCH Young Scientist Award will be presented during this event.
