Standard Terminology Relating to Thermophysical Properties
|Publication Date:||1 March 2007|
1.1 This is a compilation of terms and corresponding definitions commonly used in the study of thermo physical properties. Terms that are generally understood or defined adequately in other readily available sources are either not included or their sources identified.
1.2 A definition is a single sentence with additional information included in a Discussion. It is reviewed every five years, and the year of the last review or revision is appended.
1.3 Definitions identical to those published by another standards organization or ASTM Committee are identified with the abbreviation of the name of the organization or the identifying document and ASTM Committee; for example, ICTA is the International Confederation for Thermal Analysis.
1.4 Definitions of terms specific to a particular field (such as dynamic mechanical measurements) are identified with an italicized introductory phrase.
