SCTA and Ceramics

  • O. Toft Sorensen

Part of the Hot Topics in Thermal Analysis and Calorimetry book series (HTTC, volume 3)


Conventional Thermal Analysis has since its introduction been used abundantly in studies of classical ceramics (clay products, porcelain, concrete) to establish the optimum process conditions for the fabrication of these materials and to measure their properties and behaviour. As a relatively new technique, however, the main applications of Sample-Controlled techniques (SCTA) has been in more fundamental studies of what generally is termed as engineering ceramics (structural and functional ceramics) and in this chapter we shall therefore focus on some recent thermogravimetric and dilatometric studies on these materials. Although many catalyst and adsorbents also can be considered as engineering ceramics, SCTA studies on these materials are however treated separately in Chapters 6 and 7.
