ECTP 21st

European Conference on Thermophysical Properties

September 3 - 8, 2017

Graz University of Technology, Graz, Austria

The 21st European Conference is organized by the Group of Thermophysics and Metal Physics of the Institute of Experimental Physics at Graz University of Technology, with the help of ÖGI Leoben and of AIT, Vienna.

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 non- Newtonian properties, mass-diffusion and thermo-diffusion, 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.
