The volume expansivity of glycols is just slightly larger than of water.
Including the volume expansivity in the derivation leading to Equation (11) tends to reduce the effect of pressure difference on enthalpy (except in those rare situations where the volume expansivity is negative).
On the other hand, the impact of pressure drop and volume expansivity on the computed heat transfer rate can be more significant for other liquids.
Thermal stress together with the expansivity mismatch can cause mechanical failure.
The isobaric linear thermal expansivity is defined as [[alpha].
Figures 3 and 4 depict also the effect of the volume fraction crystallinity on the expansivity of anisotropic POM sheets.
At low values of [Lambda], a slight decrease in the expansivity is observed upon increasing the transverse aspect ratio from 1 to 5, i.
In polymeric materials the thermal transitions are accompanied by changes in the isobaric expansivity [also known as the coefficient of thermal expansion (CTE)] of the material.
The premise for analyzing the effect of changing stress levels on the expansivity is based on the work of Tschoegl and Filler (22) on EPDM.
The linear thermal expansivity at 25 [degrees] C, calculated by the method previously described (11), has an accuracy of 6%.
Since the thermal conductivity and thermal expansivity of the blends are closely related to the aspect ratio and alignment of the LCP fibrils and the molecular chain orientation within the fibrils, we will first describe the morphology and molecular orientation.
