Abstract [en]

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.
