Thermophysical properties of liquids: Modelling and non-metallic materials
2005 (English)In: ESA SP, ISSN 0379-6566, E-ISSN 1609-042X, no 1281, 24-35 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
The accurate knowledge and high-precision measurements of the thermophysical properties of liquids is necessary for the numerical modeling of industrial processes where the solid-liquid phase transformation plays a crucial role. The reduction of magnetic levitation forces in microgravity leads either to a significant improvement in accuracy or makes the measurement possible in the first place. High-precision measurements on chemically highly reactive melts require containerless processing using non-contact diagnostic tools. Scientific precursor experiments were conducted in the TEMPUS containerless processing facility during the Spacelab IML-2 and MSL-1 missions, also.
